Holly and I spent two nights in Luray, staying at the stately Mimslyn Inn.  We visited Luray Caverns and the quite interesting historical museum and buildings associated with it, and explored the relatively new Hawksbill Greenway, a walking and biking trail that weaves around the town, with impressive wildlife, resting and viewing places, a gathering space for music and performances, and beautiful murals on old farm and industrial buildings.  (Query: can you find me in one?)  Very nicely done; the town is clearly and understandably proud of its creation.  We returned on the third day via Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park.  There were many beautiful sights, but we were particularly taken with the flowering Turks Caps along the way.
