Skyland Resort Weekend
November 12-13, 2011
Photos On The Road > Skyland Resort Weekend
We've stayed at Skyland many times over the years and enjoy our trips in the cool weather of late Fall. This time we were at the far end of the cabin/condos on the bottom terrace area. It sure gave us a good view of Luray and Shenandoah Valley. The hike up Stony Man was nice but very cold and windy at the top. Julie, Jesse, their kids, Carrie and Joe joined us for the weekend. It was a fun weekend.

Here's a panorama pic off our balcony. It was beautiful.

Had to try a video to capture the full horizon. Of course, it could have used a tripod. ;)

Julie and Carrie were trying to get a ride at noon but they ran out of horses.

Aubrey got to ride a pony though. She had fun.

A lot of others were on top of Stony Man too.

Shooting down on Skyline Drive, you can see the trees are naked now.

A rock where folks train for climbing. This is a great rapelling spot. Had to do the zoom in so you could see the people.

Zoomed out view of Shenandoah valley and the Luray Reservoir.

Zooming in, seeing if the Canon SX130 can handle it.

Zoomed all the way
