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.
Michelle said…
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!

Great images!
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,

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
