Life doesn't get better than this. Our campsite among the trees gives us the full benefit of the colors. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to spend a week.

2001-10-17: Shenandoah National Park

The foliage as we drove Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park was spectacular. The panorama view looking down at the valley was almost as incredible as the colors.

2001-10-18: Monticello

We visited Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's plantation, while in the area. The house and grounds originally occupied 5000 acres with the house being referred to as Jefferson's "essay in architecture". He was a man of many talents who kept detailed records about everything that interested him. The plantation and the museum have an incredible collection of artifacts.

2001-10-18: Frontier Culture Museum

This living museum in Staunton is a place where we were able to experience 17th, 18th and 19th century European and American farms. Each farm was moved from its respective country and reassembled here. We visited farms from Germany, Scotland/Ireland, England and Virginia. One could walk around the grounds or get a ride in a covered wagon pulled by a pair of beautiful oxen.

2001-10-18: Meat Pie Anyone?

There were demonstrations at each farm such as making linen from flax, cooking a meal over the fireplace in the kitchen and baking bread in the fireplace chamber . This is a meat pie ready to go in the oven at the English farm.
