Jul 17, 2018 - Shenandoah skyline

It rained most of the day on our way through Pennsylvania, MD,and WVa down I81 but cleared up by the time we got to Virginia. We drove up to the Shenandoah natl park and found the Matthews Arm cg. The road to the CG had great views all along it and the CG was about deserted. Very quiet and excellent for only $7.50 a night! We'll definitely come back and drive the entire skyline.

May 14, 2017 - Luray, VA

May 14, 2017 Happy Mother’s Day! Today is absolutely gorgeous with bright sunshine, mild breeze and in the mid 70’s. We feel like we are living on a farm with the cows, silos, wheat fields….is really very pleasant. Very lazy day. I made Bob pancakes for breakfast and in trade he did the laundry. I reorganized our storage, washed floors and otherwise cleaned up the rig. At about noon, the wind really picked up to the point we had to take down the awning. Read, had leftovers for lunch and took a walk down the country road along a nice...

May 13, 2017 - Fredericksburg to Luray, VA

May 13, 2017 We knew we had a full day so Bob had a breakfast sandwich from camp ( not a usual offering) and took off for the Stephen Udvar-Hazar National Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, VA near Dulles airport. A Hungarian who leased aircraft to the airlines and did well in the US, UH donated 65 million to build the museum. We took a volunteer docent tour of the museum highlights led by a well-spoken pilot. He told great stories about the pilots and the unusual planes which made the museum come alive. The SR-71 Blackbird was developed...

Oct 22, 2015 - Luray VA

We were all set up in the beautiful Luray KOA by 3:15 after a just over 4 hour drive through parts of 4 states – PA, MD, WV and finally VA. The campground is very nice, but the surrounding scenery is what makes this a great spot. We are in a valley with fall colors on the mountains to the east and west and Shenandoah National Park to the southeast, which is our target for tomorrow's travels. Skyline Drive runs through SNP for 105 miles from Front Royal, VA south to Waynesboro. Today, we did 66 of those miles in 2 different sessions, from...

May 5, 2015 - Wytheville and Luray, VA

We continued the trip to New England with stops in Wytheville and Luray, VA. We stopped for a couple of days in Wytheville. While there, we drove the Virginia portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but did not find it as spectacular as the North Carolina portion – it did not have the extensive vistas that we saw in NC. We were also surprised to find how far behind the season seems to be – Dogwoods and Redbuds were still in full bloom, but the hardwoods have barely begun to sprout leaves. After Wytheville, we headed north to Luray in the...

Sep 2, 2013 - Luray, Virginia

Depart: Washington, DC. Arrive: Luray, Virginia Today was an easy drive even though it was a freeway drive. Once we got to Front Royal, Virginia it became a very beautiful drive. We drove the Skyline drive which is in Shenandoah National Park. It has magnificent views along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Before we came to the tunnel that is called the Thornton Gap Entrance we left the Skyline Drive as the tunnel is only recommended for 12' 8" clearance, we could have probably done it if we had stayed in the middle (we are 13' 1")...

Oct 26, 2012 - Luray, VA Area

We left the D.C. area mid-morning Wednesday (10/24) and drove to Luray, VA. Although we had hoped to follow the colors south, we find ourselves about a week late ... so colors are not so great .... but how can you NOT find the scenery spectacular!! For some of the drive we found ourselves with the Blue Ridge Mountains (and famed Skyline Drive) on our left and the Shenandoah Mountains on our right. We have been through this area many times, but have never really appreciated it's beauty and grandeaur! Yeah ... how much for granted we take...

Sep 30, 2012 - Luray & The Skyline Drive

Thursday – We walked the Hawksbill Greenway into Luray a 2 mile walkway that they have built near the town, it goes along the river where we saw a groundhog, black crowned heron, green heron and loads of different ducks. After stopping for a cold drink as it was 83 today & very humid we walked further out of town to get some groceries, then about a 3.5 mile walk back well you would think that was enough exercise for today but after lunch back at the RV Wal suggests we walk up the lane from the campground about another 3 miles in all. We are...

May 29, 2012 - Luray, VA - Luray KOA aka Country Waye Campground

It was a quick 92 miles from Lexington to Luray, Va. The first 40 miles was on I-81 with heavy traffic but once we started the back roads, the traffic was almost non-existent which suited me fine. We are staying at the Luray KOA, formerly known as the Country Waye Campground. We have a very nice 50 amp full hookup pull-through with a large field out our right side. Verizon is good and the satellite was easy - the campground had great WiFi when we checked in and the campground was empty, but it deteriorated rapidly when the weekend crowd...
