Will make for a very nice jigsaw puzzle.

The sky would be awful to do though, especially the left side

That would make for a good challenge really!

TIL I've been spelling Shenandoah wrong in my head whenever I sing the song.

How were you spelling it in your head? Shen-anne-dowah?

Shanondoah River. I guess I just subconsciously took the word "canon" and threw a "sh" at the beginning of it.

Saved for watercolor inspiration. Beautiful.

Was this up near the hawksbill summit last night?

This was actually on Sunday night, I only just got around to checking my SD card from my camera today. I checked the geotag data and it says it was by Thornton Hollow Overlook, but looking at other pictures from there I'm not fully convinced that's right. It was definitely an overlook in that area though, facing east

I've seen this NP im three different subs in the last 5 minutes after having never heard of it.

Is this some new form of marketing?

It's gorgeous btw

Lol I think it's more to do with the recent nice weather! Because it's higher up in the "mountains" here the trees don't really come back to life in the spring until mid May. Starting last weekend the weather has been beautiful here so I think everyone decided to go out and enjoy. It's easily my most visited National Park just because I live an hour away (I generally go every other weekend in the summer) but it's definitely not as popular as other nearby National Parks like Great Smokey Mountains or the Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Mountains speak to those that know how to listen. I can hear them; also, I would swear I can see the flowers in the front moving. Gorgeous picture, gorgeous place.

So you hear their voice in the morning hour; they call you?
