Day 6 - Shenandoah National Park

We were up with the sun after a chilly, windy night and decided to get into the car after breakfast and drive a bit so that we could run the heat.  We drove back north through the park and took in some more overlooks.(Up that is my hand blocking the sun in the photo of Old Rag.

We stopped into the Byrd visitor center and talked with a ranger named Woody who gave us multiple hiking suggestions and then checked out the reader boards about the history of the park, because, Reader Boards, Information, Interpretive of Amy's favorite things!

We decided to hike the Rose River Loop trail and hook up to Dark Hollow Falls as an attempt to get out of the wind.  It was a lovely hike and the falls were flowing pretty well.
We headed back to the campground and took hot showers had some snacks and then made a dinner of pasta with marinara and white beans, there was enough leftover for 2 lunches!  The wind died down right before we turned in for the night and it was a much more comfortable sleep but still chilly outside of the sleeping bag.
