Shenandoah River State Park...

Our home base for all our fun apple picking, wine tasting, train riding weekend was the newly opened, Shenandoah River State Park.  We really are lucky to live in a state that has been voted (multiple times) as having the best state run parks.  They really are well done, clean, friendly, and offer great spaces to enjoy all the beauty that Virginia offers. 

We were a few weeks ahead of full on fall colors, but we still saw some leaves that had started to change.  The evenings were cool and made campfires (and sweatshirts!) necessary.  It was a quick walk to the river and again, the views were spectacular.

The night sky was amazing with very little light pollution which made for beautiful starry nights.  In the mornings we were greeted with views of the mountains and valley.  Best part, it was a short 90 minutes away from home!

Score another one for the camper!
