Re: National Parks
Well, back to the places to stay or not:
A couple of nights ago, we stayed in Shenandoah National Park, along the Skyline Drive. It's the northern part of the BlueRidge Parkway. Absolutely beautiful vista's along the whole 470 or so miles that make up the National Park and BlueRidge Parkway. It extends from Front Royal, VA, down to Cherokee, NC, the entire length of the BlueRidge Mountains. Many wonderful campgrounds, but none with elec/water, although most have toilets, potable water and dumpstations. However, don't stay during the summer, and defininitely, not on weekends, they are PACKED! At least in the Shenandoah National Park! That is NOT camping! However, when the kids are all back in school, go for it!
Right now we are in Lancaster, PA (well, actually in Intercourse, PA..but it seems better to say my wife and I are in the middle of Lancaster than that we are in the middle of .... :- )). Yes, Lancaster County...Amish Country, and the sights are just beautiful. We are staying at Beacon Hill Campground, only about 1/3 mile from downtown Intercourse, where there is some great eatiing and wonderful shopping. Horse drawn buggies, farmers working with beautiful horse teams. Take a look below at our view from our chairs this AM. That's a beautiful Amish farm in the background, with their livestock on the hill. Come on East, there's some beautiful places to go.
