Captured three days ago, this photo shows the view from Buck Hollow Overlook at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Located just 75 miles from Washington, D.C., Shenandoah offers an escape to nature with its cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas and quiet wooden hollows. You can take a hike, meander along the scenic Skyline Drive or have an afternoon picnic, and as the leaves begin to take on the colors of fall, it’s the perfect time to visit!
