Day 49: Thursday, Oct. 17, Skyline Drive and Charlottesville, VA

Thursday: Left Front Royal, Virginia on the Skyline Drive. Although overcast, it was quite breathtaking. Colors were muted and many of the overlooks showed layers of clouds penetrating mountains (the Allegheny’s & Shenandoah’s). Our pictures do not do justice.
Went to Michie’s Tavern, built in 1784, famous for its hearty fare – fried chicken, green-beans, beets, potatoes, homemade biscuits, blackeyed peas, and peach cobbler – and it was very good. Then on to Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello. Quite beautiful and interesting history. Jefferson was certainly a selfish, brilliant and multi talented man. Back through old town in Charlettsville, then through the U of V “grounds” and on to our motel. Another great day.
