Vacation at Home

I didn’t really like the idea of our vacation being totally cut short by the weather, although Tony was itching to get back to work (there were things that needed to be done). The weather here was beautiful, so I asked Tony if maybe he could work half days or something and we could finish our vacation in our Shenandoah. He agreed enthusiastically.

So, a couple of days after we got home, we took the bikes up to Skyline Drive and hiked to Furnace Mountain. It was a nice hike, but long.

The best thing about doing things near home is that if you see something you want to do (again), you don’t have to travel for days to do it.

On the way back, Tony noticed this funny looking flower. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s pretty cool. What you can’t see very well in this picture is the way the stem is weird and kind of fringe-y.
