Happy Thankful Thursday!


Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you all have a great day!

Recently hubby and I went on an overnight trip to Shenandoah National Park. We stayed at the Skyland Resort in a nice room with a balcony. 

This is a view from one of the overlooks on the Skyline Drive. We started the drive at Front Royal and drove down the Skyline Drive to Skyland, Big Meadows and a little past Big Meadows. 



We walked on the Big Meadows, a little windy but it was a warmer wind.


We spent the night at the Skyland lodge and hotel. Our room was on the second floor and we had a great view of the valley from our balcony. 


There were Robins all over the place. 





 We saw lots of deer later in the evening and in the early morning 


We did see a lot of wild turkeys along the drive and in the woods. 


We took a walk the first day on the Limberlost Trail. Along the trail we heard and saw some Blue-headed Vireo's, Hermit Thrush and Juncos. 






Till this trip we missed seeing the sunset/sunrises at Shenandoah NP. We went on many day trips and left way before sunset to drive home. Years ago we went on many camping trips to Shenandoah NP, my days of camping and sleeping on the ground are long gone.







I am thankful to see the wildlife, like the deer and wild turkeys.
I am thankful for the beautiful sunsets, a simple pleasure I enjoy.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments.

I have been enjoying the birds right outside my window, the spring birds are arriving and the winter birds are still here as I type this post.  These may not be the clearest photos, they were all taken from my closed dining room window.
