Virginia’s Blue Ridge In The Fall

Motor Man and I took a day trip to the Virginia mountains last week. I can’t say that we hit the fall foliage at the very peak, but it was still a beautiful ride.

It’s easy to see why the name “Blue Ridge”.

This wonderful little antique shop was one of our stops.  The name is Old Raggedy Ann Antiques, and it’s located in an old country store in the map-dot of Etlan, Va. Wouldn’t it be nice if all old buildings could be given a second life like this?

Please pardon the blurred fence (another 55 mph capture), but this scene was too pretty not to share.

During a stop at a scenic overlook, we noticed another couple attempting to take a selfie. We asked if they’d take a picture of us, since we’ve never had much success with selfies.  As it turns out, they felt the same way, so we returned the favor.

  1. Beautiful. The leaves are at peak here and I have yet to really capture any great shots but hopefully I will. Lovely post!

  2. That is a wonderful photo of you and your husband!

  3. Beautiful photos.

  4. Looks like you had a wonderfully relaxing day. Beautiful scenery – we agree.

  5. Oh, I loved seeing these pictures, Dianne. My current books takes place in a fictional town based on the Shenandoah Valley…one of my favorite places. I love that last photo!

  6. I’d say you captured fall just right. Beautiful photos.

  7. So far it’s been a gorgeous Fall around this area……!


  8. Autumn’s definitely rolling in ! ..
    I’ve always been a fan of the reds- it seems everybody has different reasons why foliage displays are good or bad, but I guess you just take what comes along ! Love that last pic …

    Had a great time this morning – pumpkin ice cream @ 10 a.m!

  9. Sounded like a lovely day! I’ve been down with a flu so I haven’t been out to get any good fall pictures. 😦

  10. This looked like a wonderful trip!! I had never heard of that town, and you did not mention if you got anything…I too am always amazed at the Blue blue Bue Ridge Mountains. Great pictures even at 55!

  11. Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year–and the Blue Ridge Mountains are such a spectacular place to view the fall foliage.
