The Skyline Drive, Shenandoah

 A most marvelous and pastoral member of the National Parks of America. Shenandoah National Park and its long share of the Skyline Drive. We are in our RV, with our ultimate goal to be Maine. August 2nd, 2021.  A chance to escape the oppressive heat and humidity of a North Carolina August. 

Today was a long held bucket list item. Biking the Skyline Drive which runs the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We hit 2900 feet above sea level today. Not a big deal altitude for western US folks but for us Low Country folks it presents a fine and dramatic relief from the southeastern, change your shirt 3 times a day, humid late summer days.

Started in 1930 and finished in 1937, the Skyline Drive is a lovely piece of engineering. We lucked into a quiet traffic day and had a terrific ride.
