Shenandoah’s Forest in the Sky

1 Comment

Remember when you thought it might be possible to walk on clouds because they, of course, were made of a fluffy solid substance similar to cotton balls?

Last Friday, we to Shenandoah National Park for the day. Instead of hot and sunny – our new normal – it was moderate and cloudy, even a little rainy.  I don’t mind hot weather, but much prefer cloudy skies if I am outside all day. Shenandoah is known for its spectacular overlooks, however on cloudy days, you just see clouds. Kind of neat in my opinion. Our six-year-old touched clouds for the first time in my memory. She is now fully aware that clouds are foggy mists instead of cotton balls – a slightly sad, but magical discovery.

One thought on “Shenandoah’s Forest in the Sky

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about if you added some great visuals
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Very good blog!
