Mountains and Caves


Columbus day weekend greeted us with spectacular weather, sunny skies and late summer temperatures with just a hint of fall as the leaves started to take on their autumn colors. We decided to take advantage of the long weekend with a Sunday family outing to the Shenandoahs. I've been reading the Hobbit to Owen, and he wanted to see the Misty Mountains, and the cave where Gollum lived, so a trip to Skyline Drive and the Luray Caverns seemed to be perfect. The whole family had a great time enjoying the views in the mountains, and Owen had a particularly good time not eating his picnic lunch and convincing a little girl that she should play football with him. Then Mommy was quite the trooper descending into the cave with us to see some beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, and an underground lake that might just be where Gollum lived...
