Chasing butterflies on Skyline Drive (part 1)

This past weekend we decided to go for a ride and see where the day would take us. We ended up on Skyline Drive, starting at the Front Royal entrance. We've done this trip several times before, but always in the fall. 

It was really fascinating to enjoy the park in the summer. We drove 62 of the 105 miles and saw stunning scenery, lots of wildlife and gorgeous wildflowers. Not to mention it was a beautiful 73-75 degrees the entire ride, unlike the high 80s and 90s we have in Northern Virginia.

The milkweed and other wildflowers attracted tons of butterflies. These beauties were literally everywhere you turned. Here are some shots I took.
