2016 Jim Schmid drives Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park and hikes sections of Appalachian Trail – VA

I’m on my way home from biking on rail-trails in Maryland and Pennsylvania. I usually stay  on Interstate 81 to get home in a timely fashion.  It’s Fall and  such nice weather I decided to drive Skyline  Drive through Shenandoah National Park along with some of the  Blue Ridge Parkway. I stopped at t he visitor centers, pulled over and over looks, and even hiked sections of the Appalachian Trail which crossed Skyline Drive at numerous places.
