Shenandoah: Lands Run Falls Hike







Shenandoah National Park may be my favorite place on Earth...It has strong memories for me and I go there to find comfort and adventure.

Skyline Drive is where my dad used to take my sister, uncle, and me on Black Friday. We often hiked up to Mary's Rock.

This winter our little group did a 1.3 mile hike straight downhill to the falls then followed the trail 1.3 miles back up a steep grade. Oh man were my legs feeling it on Monday!

This hike is a fairly easy trip (although uphill the entire way back to your vehicle). If you haven't been up on skyline drive then it is a MUST for this area. Head down I-81 and get off on 66. Take a right off the Front Royal exit. If you like hiking, camping, taking pictures of scenic views, or even if you'd like to just take a drive somewhere then Shenandoah National Park has a lot to offer you!

Winchester, Virginia


Winchester Virginia is my hometown and where I plan to move back to in a matter of months to continue on with life.

I find the town to be a pleasant mix of country life and a dab of city. It seems that some people can underestimate the potential of a small town. My purpose here is to provide details of upcoming events as well as outlining entertainment for you to enjoy in our little town. Of course, what fits one person won't fit everyone but I hope that you'll bare with me here and browse around the walking mall, explore some outdoor recreation, and check out our local food venues.
