For our honeymoon we stayed in the Dogwood Cabin at the park. We've started taking a few more creature comforts with a few nights at one of the larger (warmer) rooms, but we always spend a few nights at Dogwood. It has become an old friend. At each visit, I've ended up with a picture of Ali at the steps by Dogwood. The images give a view of some weather extremes we've seen while here.

We started our day above the clouds with Skyland resting above a low cloud ceiling in the Shenandoah Valley. Todays trip would take us north and out of the park so we could reach a more southern entrance and start our Shenandoah day at Blackrock. We're above the clouds! There is a reason why it is called Skyland.

Ali had seen a hospital's stethoscope wrapped around an apple the prior evening. We were driving past this morning when I noticed there was a regular cache on the grounds. We located a nice walking trail where the cache was hidden. We didn't expect to also spot a very nice green heron alongside a small pond beside the trail.
