10/12/2013: Day 10: Sky Meadows State Park and Front Royal on a rainy Saturday
We spent most of the day driving rainy pastoral byways, with nice stops in Sky Meadows State Park for an unexpected Fall Farm Festival, and arriving for the annual Festival of Leaves in Front Royal.
But Blue Ridge leaves have meager color, so far this year. And the four blocks of the festival was basically rained out as well as missing the usual crowds for the National Park.
We arrived a couple of hours before it was supposed to end, and caught the last of the chilled and dejected vendors packing up.
We figured that this is a good place to leave some tourist dollars.
