Above the mountains and clouds

In September, I took my family hiking in Shenandoah. It was a cloudy day, which made for some pleasant hiking. Here's a photo from Pinnacles Overlook—reinforcing why they're called the "Blue Ridge Mountains".

After stopping at Pinnacles Overlook, we drove to Skyland and hiked up Stony Man. Unfortunatley, by the time we got to the peak, low clouds moved in to obstruct our view. Here's a photo I took just before the clouds completely obstructed our view.

All was not lost (photographically). After departing the Stony Man parking area, we came across the Thorofare Mountain Overlook and got a great view of the clouds creeping over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We had a fun time on the hike and the views with the clouds rolling in were wonderful. I hope you enjoyed my photos. I have some more coming from subsequent trips to Shenandoah and Catoctin. Stay tuned!
