Summary

Description
English: View of the heart of Shenandoah National Park at the height of the fall “leaf-peeping” season. The orange and brown swath across the image highlights the hilly backbone of the park, where leaves had turned to their fall colours. The 169-kilometre Skyline Drive that meanders across the crest of the ridge is often jammed with tourists in autumn. The long, narrow park in the Blue Ridge Mountains spans more than 179,000 acres, with 40 percent of the land protected as wilderness.
