As usual, the weather in Shenandoah National Park was unpredictable. After driving through snow, thick fog, and rain, I found myself above the clouds which were starting to break up at the Timber Hollow Overlook on Skyline Drive.
Several large birds of prey were circling around the misty updraft between the mountain I was standing on, and the one in the distance. For these guys, that is the equivalent of a lazy boy recliner. You get to chill with your arms stretched out, only expending energy when you’re hungry and see a nice rabbit or some other tasty creature running from your shadow below.
