when in virginia... visit the blue ridge mountains!



nine times out of ten i'll choose the city over the country, but then there are times that i think i could be a country girl instead. visiting my dad's house in sperryville, virginia, was one of those times. his house, nestled in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains, backs up onto the shenandoah national park, and is a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of washington dc. there is no cellphone reception in this part of the world, but there are wineries, farm stands, and cute little towns with quaint restaurants, most notably the inn at little washington. and the views are stunning: if you have the time take a ride along skyline drive; it's definitely worth the trip.
