On this quick weekend trip, we are visiting Shenandoah National Park and Washington DC! All within the span of 1.5 days! First, we make our way north into Virginia from Tennessee, stopping at the Virginia welcome center where we got some pics with the Virginia is for Lovers sign. We continued on north some more, and stopped at Pal's Sudden Service for dinner, where we got some of the biggest and best hamburgers, especially for fast food. Eventually after several more hours of driving, we finally made it to Shenandoah National Park. We set up camp in the dark at the Big Meadows Campground. The next morning, we woke up and made some campfire breakfast and jet boil instant coffee to kickstart our day. After breakfast, we put everything away in our campsite's bear box, and headed on over to the Big Meadows Visitor Center. At the Big Meadows visitor center, there is also a restaurant and small gas station. After we finished up at Shendandoah's visitor center, we got on Skyline Drive, and made many stops at the scenic overlooks along the way Along the Shenandoah Skyline Drive, we stopped to hike the Upper Hawksbill Trail. This trail was great: pretty easy, relatively short (2.1 miles round trip), and had great views at the end making for a fantastic payoff. After hiking the Upper Hawksbill Trail, we continued through Shenandoah on the Skyline Drive all the way to the Thorntons Gap entrance station. From there we decided to drive the extra couple of hours to visit Washington DC (since we were already so far north anyways). Once we got to DC, we parked in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center because we couldn't find any street parking. We walked up and down the national mall in the rain. First we started at the Washington Monument, from which you can see the US Capitol Building and the White House. As we walked up the mall, we walked through the World War II Memorial. Then we continued pass the reflecting pool, and up to the Lincoln Memorial. On the way back to our car, we saw the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the White House. After we were done with the Washington DC national mall, we drove over to China Town, where we ate at our favorite Chinese restaurant in Washington DC, Chinatown Express, where they make fresh noodles. We also got some fresh pig (pork) here because it is our favorite. After we finished, we made the 2 hour drive back to our campsite in the Big Meadows campground in Shenandoah National Park. To cap off our cloudy and rainy day, it poured at night, so we ended up camping in the rain which was not fun at all. we ended up sleeping in the car and in the eno hammock instead of sleeping in the tent. The next day, we dried out our stuff, packed up the car, and made the road trip back home. We stopped and ate lunch at a rest area along the interstate where we made sandwhiches.
