The day started early. My dad, stepmother and I hit the road at 6:30. We started out on the Garden State Parkway. There was a lot of fog as we made our way through the familiar terrain of New Jersey. Then we caught I-78 all he way to Harrisburg. From there our route turned South on I-81 through the rolling hills of Southern Pennsylvania. The fog dissipated just in time for me to take in the incredible view of the surrounding area.
After lunch we crossed into Maryland, then hopped over the Potomac into West Virginia. 81 cuts straight through the Shenandoah Valley. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains was spectacular. Eventually our path turned Southwesterly through Southern Virginia and into Tennessee.
My dad drove the whole way. I could not have made this trip without him. Being in the backseat gave me the opportunity to take some pictures. Sadly a number of them suck. I’ll post highlights over the weekend. For now, good night.
