photo diary | farewell fall (+another visit to VA)

Well, another fall season has come and gone. It was radiant, alluring and inspiring as always. Despite Florida’s measly seasonal changes, I took it upon myself to book a flight to Virginia. While visiting my brother there, we made it a point to journey back to Shenandoah National Park. Leaving the house at 3 a.m., we were able to catch the sun rise up and over the mountain peaks. These pictures don’t share a justice of how beautiful it was.

Anyway, here is a collection of photographs I’ve put together- all taken from the fall season.

Filled with stallagmites and stalactites, these underground caverns were a true work of art. At about 200 feet into the earth, the air that filled my lungs was a cool 60 degrees, setting a true cave-like tone. I’m still completely blown away by the magnificent creations that lie below the earths surface.

This was my first time at a National Park and I can’t even begin to describe how alive I felt. Between the vast horizons, fresh air and lack of civilization, I can definitely say I was high on life. I was surrounded by mountains and tree tops. Butterflies played around my hair as the sun kissed my skin. This experience allowed me to feel renewed. It allowed me to reconnect with myself and become one with the earth. If you’ve never been to a National Park before, I would highly recommend it.
