Shenandoah National Park

Happy Monday, have a great day!


These are some images from a recent day trip to Shenandoah National Park. We enjoyed the drive on Skyline Drive, hiked on the Limberlost Trail and a walk on the Big Meadows to see the flowers and butterflies.  




We saw lots of deer along the Limberlost Trail.






Eastern Bluebirds were a nice sighting at the Big Meadows.


Mushroom seen along the trail.






We saw lots of butterflies during our Big Meadows walk. 



Monarch on the Thistle at the Big Meadows.


These flowers were seen along the side of the Skyline drive.

 


Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.



Thanks to the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!
I hope to see you there. Thanks to the host today. Enjoy your day and new week.


As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

  5. Great areas to walk and appreciate nature. We can only hope that no one is allowed to sully them with development and that funds for their continuance are always available.

  13. Så nydelige bilder du viser.
    Jeg såg også hjort her om dagen. Det er midt i jakten så dei vil helst gå i skjul.
    Du hadde ein flott søndagstur.

    Ønsker deg en fin uke.
