Oct 13, 2007 - Luray Caverns - Luray, VA

(Ron Writing) This morning we drove to the nearby town, Luray, to pick up our mail and to see the Luray Caverns. These are considered the largest and most popular caverns in the eastern United States. We went on a one-hour guided tour that took us on a 1-1/4 mile path through the cave. The cave has many beautiful features and very large stalactites and stalagmites. There was also a large pool of water that gave a perfect reflection of the stalactites above; quite a beautiful sight. Another unique feature of the caverns is the "Great...

After leaving the national park, we exited in Luray, VA to check out the infamous Luray Caverns. We took a tour consisting of a mile hike under ground in 54 degree temperature. Very very interesting cavern. It had some huge stalagmite and stalagtite formations. After the tour, we entered their automobile museum which had a nice collection of old wagons, buggies and automobiles. Wrapped the day up by heading back to the camper for some swimming and fishing. -Alison.

Wow, what a long drive we had today! I was snapping photos left and right and even through the back window! Today we left PA, drove through Delaware, Maryland and into Virginia. This afternoon we arrived at the Country Waye Campground in Luray, Virginia. We are next to the Shenandoah National Park. This is the peak season and we had trouble finding a campground with an opening. They have WiFi that is slower than using a modem. The foliage is awesome. We will be driving through the National Park tomorrow which had an hour line to get into...

Oct 17, 2006 - Luray Caverns and Town

After a windy, cold, and rainy night, I went into Luray to be in a cold (54 degrees), but still and lit up cavern about 164 feet underground. I figured it's been a long time since I was in a cave and this one is supposed to be the biggest one east of the Mississippi, so I shouldn't feel claustrophobic. First, I stopped at a local auto mechanic to have the cigarette lighter assembly put back together - it came out with the attachment needed for the brake buddy. They put it back together again and advised that I hold the end of the assembly...

Sep 24, 2006 - Trekies in Virginia

We arrived in Luray, Virginia Yesterday and checked into "The Country Waye" RV Park. Our trip here was via Shenandoah National Park. The weather was uncooperative so the views wern't as expected. The Trekies have started to disband. Today Dick, Gail, and Rocky the Wonderdog, headed South to Charlottsville to see Monticello and then on to Tennessee. We were all sorry to see them go, but separations were planned from the beginning. We wish them Good Luck and Godspeed. Keep posting your articles Gail, as they are most enjoyable. The remaining...

Jun 2, 2006 - Rileyville, VA

Rileyville, GA We stored our RV in Winchester, VA, and met with Rick, Lisa and Rusty to spend a few days in a cottage in Rileyville, VA, which is in the Shenandoah Valley. Day 1: The four of us took a scenic ride along a portion of the Sky Line Drive in the Shenandoah National Park. It was a bit overcast so the scenic views were limited from the overlooks and limited our picture taking. Day 2: Rick, Linda & Doug went for a hike in the Shenandoah National Forest. We hiked 1.4 miles to the Dark Hollow Falls, which has a 70' waterfall. It was...
