The ladies of the house: me, Regina, and Uyen (I wore a more spirited shirt later on, it was surprisingly warm during the day!)

Making shotgunning look good.

Me and E (His snow hat was completely inappropriate.)

We weren’t messing around with the tailgating. Mittal’s impressed.

(No photos of the game b/c I didn’t feel like lugging my camera.)

We decided to take Skyline Drive home instead of 81. Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park. This was the first overlook we stopped at, Calf Mountain.

Beautiful Virginia foliage!

Big Meadows

Tree Tunnel

Old Rag Overlook — Been there, climbed that.

Stony Man Overlook towards Luray, VA.

The tunnel right before we exited Skyline Drive. Overall an excellent alternative to the infamous 81, if you have a few extra hours. Well worth it!

For those of you not familiar with the Blue Ridge mountains: “The Blue Ridge Mountains are noted for their bluish color when seen from a distance. Trees put the “blue” in Blue Ridge, from the isoprene released into the atmosphere, thereby contributing to the characteristic haze on the mountains and their distinctive color.”
