Photos on Friday: Fall foliage on Skyline Drive (2014)

Today's Photos on Friday brings us back to Skyline Drive. A couple of weeks ago I posted some images from 2012 in anticipation of this year's beautiful autumn scenery. Our drive last weekend did not disappoint. In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we took the ride from Front Royal, Va. all the way down to the end, near Charlottesville. It took a few hours, and we made several stops at the overlooks along the way.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed the ride downstate.

Farms and homes in the Shenandoah Valley can be seen with pretty fall foliage (and shadows from the clouds)

The mountains and fields were bursting with color in some areas. Other (taller) mountains had already passed peak foliage we noticed as we drove south on Skyline Drive.

Some areas were still very much green
