My husband and I hiked in Shenandoah National Park yesterday – in a place called Big Meadows. A deer popped up from the grasses when we startled it with our noisy steps. We walked across the huge field to some trees, and traipsed around along the edge of the woods for a little bit. An earlier rain storm had wet the soil in the meadow, and it was muddy in some places as we hiked back, but my boots kept my feet dry.
When we finished our walk, we drove along Skyline Drive, and enjoyed amazing views at different pullouts, and stepped onto the Appalachian Trail. The Park is stunning, and there are lots of places to pause and soak in God’s creation.
We bought an annual pass – I think we’ll be using it regularly!
