We spent our last day of 4-day West Virginia tour entirely in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We entered the Blue Ridge Parkway from Buena Vista and drove all the way to Northern end of the Parkway near Waynesboro.

Snow cover made the sharp contrast to the fall colors:

Before we exited the Parkway, we stopped at Humpback Rocks Visitor Center and Farm:

and saw a walnut tree full of fruits:

We then entered the Skyline Drive at Rockfish Gap, the Southern entrance of Shenandoah National Park and drove through the entire Drive to Front Royal. The fall colors are not the best that I’ve seen in the past, probably due to the lack of rainfall (moisture) causing lots of leaves to brown out and dropped.

      Thank you for following the series and glad you like them. Yes, the lines of snow on the trees caught our eyes and made us stop to photograph.

  2. Stunning autumn colors! I love the photos with a mountain view in the background. Welcome to check my photos too! 🙂 Have a nice week!
