Shenandoah National Park 2015

We arrived New Market VA and pulled into Endless Caverns CG. We really like this CG. Again this was early in the Season, so it wasn’t busy, and wifi was good. Pool was closed, but still too cold anyway.
First Afternoon we visited the Luray Caverns. We are always amazed buy the formations in caverns. The fact that this takes place over millions of years is fascinating. Luray caverns, the most popular on the east coast, is probably best known for the Great Stalacpipe Organ.

In the afternoon we took the Jeep to lower Skyline Drive and had a wonderfully scenic tour along the beautiful Shenandoah Mountain Range.

Day two was an early morning trip to the Shenandoah Caverns, a mile long guided tour of connected chambers. One of my favorites was the bacon formation.

After the caverns tour, we were back on Skyline drive to hike! We picked a nice 7 mile loop around the Thornton Gap Area.

With so many beautiful waterfalls throughout the hike, we just couldn’t resist another selfie.

Back to the RV for dinner and a good nights rest.

Day three was another early morning route along Skyline Drive. We stopped near the north Entrance at Skyline Caverns. Skyline Caverns is known for their very different formations including Anthodites. Anthodites are an unusual form of crystal, or perfect 6-sided crystalline structures made of pure calcite, and are protected by Virginia Law.

Next, off to another hike off of Skyline Drive. This time a short but steep 5 mile loop. Spectacular views of the valley below.

By this time, it was getting late so we headed back to the RV for dinner and another night came to a close.
Early Thursday morning on the 30th we hooked up the Jeep and headed to Colonial Williamsburg VA. 81 down to 64 and into Williamsburg.
