Dark Hollow Falls, Virginia






The hubby & I took a hike on the trail at Dark Hollow Falls, part of "Shenandoah National Park" off the "Skyline Drive" in Virginia. Even though it was a Monday when we visited this trail, it was so busy. Lot of folks with their huge tripods taking pictures of the waterfalls. Lots or recent rain had caused this waterfalls to be even more gorgeous. I prefer taking shots without others in the shot, but at times there is no way to get a photograph without someone you have no clue who they are in your shot? How do you deal with that situation? 


We do have a "National Parks Pass", & if you are like us you should really investigate it more because it does save ya money. We stop into National Parks all over the US. They do have a "Senior Pass" for folks over the age of 62, for a lifetime pass for only $10.00 bucks. What a deal!!!... hoping they will still have that when we get to that age, fingers crossed there. Please watch & hear the waterfalls in this video above. Beth ( :

Hello, Beth! Hubby and I have been to Dark Hollow Falls many times. It is one of the most crowded waterfalls in Shenandoah. We have the national park pass too, it is great to have. I have a few more years until I can get the Senior pass. Have a happy day!

I love tagging along on your adventures. You two and Betsy and George (Joyful Reflections) are my tour guides to places I hope to visit some day.

Sometimes I don't mind people in my shots as it gives a sense of size and place. Most of my photos don't have people in them, though.

hi beth, the water sounds very powerful and looks very beautiful!!!

i know what you mean about other people in your pictures. i have a lot of patience and often wait. sometimes it is impossible to get a shot without strangers, especially a distance shot and i just accept it. sometimes it's nice to see them enjoying the beauty of nature.

this looks like a great spot!!!!

A fine capture of the small stream's rushing water. It was fun to hear how it roars along.

Beautiful FAlls as always..Love seeing them...
Raining and cold here right now, so it is lovely to see a warm and beautiful summers day here! xx

What a gorgeous waterfall. Sometimes having people in the shot, as inconvenient as it can seem, is a good thing- it reinforces the scale of what you're photographing.

Beautiful scenes. The rushing water looks good and sounds delightful.

Gorgeous! You visit the best places!

I love to hear water like that, though I might get tired of it if I heard it all day. Now if it were a lazy, running stream where the sound was not so loud, I could listen to it all day.

Anyway, I have trouble dealing with people in my photos, too. I hate having my picture taken so am very shy of taking photos with other people in them, but if they are at a distance where they don't know, I would just go ahead and snap them.

I was there many years ago. I remember the hike back up was steep, and a group of backpackers was ahead of us. A woman had a pan and spoon hanging from her pack and it clanged with every step!

Beautiful! Just beautiful! I drove through Virginia a couple years ago and thought it was the most beautiful state I had been to. I've seen a lot but Virginia is stunning! Thanks for sharing your photos. Have a lovely Friday!

The waterfalls are stunning! I don't have the patience to wait until everyone is gone and I always end up with people in my photos.

HEHEHE...we have two Senior Passes and we take advantage of them. We have been to the falls and they ARE beautiful.

I've been on the Skyline drive but would love to go back when we have time to actually stop and see some of these beautiful sights! Now that we are living in VA, maybe it will be a fun weekend adventure in the spring. :)
Hi Beth, Even though I don't comment much these days, I do try to read blog posts by some of my favorite people. Your travels always interest me since we also love to travel. We have those Senior passes and make good use of them!

We love the Shenandoah area ---and have been to several waterfalls in that area... Great pictures --and thanks for sharing.

Merry Christmas to you and your hubby...
Hugs,
Betsy

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
