[From Afton Mountain, Near Waynesboro, Virginia, October 26, 2012]

About twenty-five JPGers assembled in Richmond, Virginia, in late October for the 4th meet-up in a continuing series (following Nashville, Phoenix, and St. Louis.)

On the first full day, we drove west to the Blue Ridge Mountains, about 75 miles away. The fog was very heavy, and we could not see “the car ahead of us.” However, as we continued to climb the Blue Ridge Parkway, the fog lifted and there, below us, lay the Shenandoah Valley and the Allegheny Mountains beyond. And, if you look carefully, you can see I-81 snaking through the Valley.

We were about two weeks too late for the peak colors, but we were not disappointed.

The Shenandoah Valley is rich in history and folklore, and we were delighted to have this opportunity.

These large meet-ups will likely continue. If you are interested, please write to me privately, and I will make sure you are added to the “master mailing list.” No salesman will call!

As always, thank you for stopping by!

    Simply stunning! I love the way the foreground is so beautifully clear, and the background gradually fades in the fog; but the colors remain bright in the whole vista.
