Skyline Fog


live about three miles from the northern entrance to Skyline Drive. Known as “a road to nowhere,” Skyline Drive is the most traveled scenic highway in the world. With a top speed limit of 35 mph, it takes quite a while to tavel the full 105 miles of the drive—especially because it is very hard to pass the scenic overlooks without stopping to drink in the intense beauty of God’s creation here in the Shenandoah Mountains.

But it isn’t always about the view.

Living this close to the drive, I have the opportunity to notice weather patterns and take a quick drive up into the mountains of Skyline Drive to photograph things that many people will never see in their lifetime. It is a tremendous blessing.

I love Virginia!
