A Leaf Peeping Bonanza

By Linda Tancs

Shenandoah National Park hosts a presidential retreat within its borders (Herbert Hoover’s Rapidan Camp), but that’s only one reason why visitors flock there, particularly in October.  Why?  Because autumn heralds peak leaf peeping season.  Skyline Drive runs for 105 miles through the park, offering 75 overlooks to take in those magnificent hues.  Better yet, slow it down a bit and walk the Appalachian Trail, which runs parallel to Skyline Drive.  Now there’s room enough for a view.
