Shenandoah National Park in Two Days

I turned the big two.five. We celebrated by getting out of the city and doing some hiking in camping in Shenandoah National Park. Yes, we did listen to John Denver on the way. I think John Denver would have liked the Terrapin (aka our Yaris). In two quick days, we completed two hikes, stalked several butterflies, played cards in the middle of a river, marveled at the views, and ingested copious amounts of s’mores at our campground. Couldn’t think of a better way to bring in the quarter-century mark. Here’s what our weekend looked like.
