This week we drove the highways and byways of southern Maryland.. we were in Mechanicsville when we were driving through an Amish community. We saw the Yoder furniture store and a quilt shop, that we are definitely going back to.
Beautiful farms dotted the landscape
Driving through tall trees that form an umbrella over the road. So beautiful and colorful. In two weeks they say the trees will be at their prime fall coloration's.
On Saturday our group of Senior Missionaries went on a field trip to the Luray Caverns in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. It was 1 1/2 hour drive through the gorgeous Virginia countryside. The mountains had a lot more color than we have in Maryland.
Lots of large farms and rolling hills.
The Luray Caverns are a national landmark and the largest caverns on the east coast. They go 10 stories under ground and were amazing. They are still growing and so it was cool and damp down there. Some of the locations ceilings are 9 stories high. I thought I might have claustrophobia but I didn't, which was good. After our tour we all had lunch at this cute diner then drove home.
This week we will get to see more sights as we travel to see these sweet sisters that we get to visit.
