evening

 

After my hike, I head to Skyland, to the nicest eatin' place in the park (the restaurant at Skyland Resort), and treat myself to a posh dinner: grilled grouper (catch of the day).  Yum!!!  And some peach cobbler to set on top.

 

Wildlife sightings in Shenandoah: chipmunks, squirrels, birds, groundhogs, and deer.  Just like home.

 

A couple more overlook views.

 

The tunnel in Mary's Rock, which is solid granite, cut through in 1932, one year after the official ground-breaking of Skyline Drive.

 

Well, sunset, of course.

 

And here's where I end up to pitch my tent.  At the edge of the woods, and yes, it's nearly dark.  Spooky!  Just what I wanted!
