THE ARTISTIC LIFE – Living the creative life in everything we do

Sunshine Therapy

Dark Hollow Falls on Skyline Drive

After the whole surgery/diet/radiation/isolation ordeal, it was time to get outdoors and enjoy life with some sunshine therapy. This also coincided with a holiday weekend off from work and the approach of the Fall foliage peak in the Shenandoah National Park region of Virginia. If you live anywhere near the Commonwealth of Virginia (even if you don’t), I highly recommend the winery region surrounding the Shenandoah Valley area, as well as Skyline Drive. In the 1000 Places to See Before You Die book, Skyline Drive is one of the 3 activities listed for Virginia. Personally, I would also include visiting a couple wineries in this area as well. Even Donald Trump loves Virginia wineries so much, that he bought one.

We drove the central section of Skyline Drive (from Thornton Gap to Swift Run Gap) and stopped at at least 15 overlooks, hiked 2 trails (one being part of the Appalachian Trail), viewed a waterfalls (see above), and ate lunch at Skyland. We had fantastic weather for it and will always remember the gorgeous views. What a way to celebrate the end of RAI treatment!
