Luray Caverns is located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia not far from the central entrance to Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park. The town of Luray offers many interesting things to do including, antiquing, movies, and the world famous Luray Caverns. In the general area you can find skiing at Massanutten and Bryce Mountain, hiking or horseback riding in the Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest. You can always try fishing, canoeing, tubing, kayaking or swimming in the Shenandoah River. For more information about the area visit www.LurayPage.com. My wife and I did a day trip from Williamsburg, Va while on our vacation in October 2010. This is a beautiful area of the country and wish we could have spent a couple of days there. I'm 58 now but visited Luray Caverns when I was 10 and said I would someday be back. I will be back again someday but with a motor home so we can take in the whole Shenandoah Valley and see all it has to offer. To visit the official site of Luray Caverns Click Here.
We will share with you pictures and video's I have taken in the Luray Caverns and part of the countryside. My wife and I traveled in from Williamsburg and planned to make a full day of this trip to Luray Caverns and the surrounding area. We left Williamsburg, Virginia at 10:00 AM and arrived at the caverns for 1:30 PM. We made it back to Williamsburg for about 7:00 PM. We saw a lot of beautiful countryside as you will see in the pictures. The trip from Williamsburg to Luray Caverns was well worth it.
picture below was compressed to about 1/4 of its original size. In
compression much detail was lost so what I have done on many
pictures is to make a thumbnail size of the picture. You can click
on these thumbnails and see the full size pictures. I was only
shooting using my camera in the 2 Meg setting for all these
pictures. If you want pictures to frame I'd advise you to visit the
caverns and set your camera for 5 Meg or greater. Most
pictures were taken without a flash.
