Skyline Drive, VA (Sun.11/11)

It's a requirement to sing the John Denver song “Country Roads” to drive the Skyline Drive. You know... “West Virginia, Blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah river...”

Besides sticking you with a toll to go on this road, there's nothing not to like. We did about 70 miles of the 100+ miles on the “official” road that runs the ridge of the blue-ridge mountains in western Virginia.

This would be a great road on a motorcycle, depending on how strict they enforce the 35mph – right, Thom?!, James?!

We got to throw some first-of-the-season snowballs, I was reminded how much I love the Leberts as Ed pegged me with a beautiful bounce off the top of the car to the side of the face snowball throw – nice shot, Ed.

Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to the 4 Leberts: Ed, Amanda, Digory, and Shelby. We missed going into West Virginia by 30 miles – that might cost us in the quest to see the lower 48... sigh...
