Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and chat about everything from road trips to home decor. Today on the blog, I am sharing a recent mini road trip that the hubby and I took in search of fall foliage. What we found was a delightful and amazing surprising!
While driving with no purpose other than enjoying the scenery and snapping photos, we saw a sign for Natural Tunnel State Park. We were in no real hurry, so we decided to check it out. To be honest, we had never heard of this park, and we expected it to be a typical state park–trees, trails, picnic tables….
Our expectations were not high, but we were hoping for some pretty good fall foliage pictures + to find out more about the area because state parks always have those signs telling about the history of the land.
The temps were chilly and the scenery was beautiful. The hubby and I ventured down the trail a bit and discovered…
While we were down at the stream, the train came. It was really cool being right there–so close! Be sure to check out the SSL/LMA Facebook page for a little train video *smile*
After much discussion, the hubby convinced me to ride the chairlift. I am not a trusting individual…but I am glad that I took the “risk”–I realize that to some of you riding a lift is not a risk–but to me–it was a pretty big deal. I do not like heights or elevators! It was a bit fun + a little romantic because I snuggled up closely to the hubby *wink*
Now before I get all mushy, let’s take a look at the photos that the hubby and I took at Natural Tunnel State Park in Scott County, Virginia.
The hubby and I loved our mini road trip + our spontaneous visit to Natural Tunnel State Park. I totally recommend y’all adding it to your travel bucket list. America truly is beautiful, and there is so much to see! I cannot wait to continue exploring this land that I love *smile*
Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today. I hope y’all enjoyed our visit *smile*
