We had a wonderful group of women on our Shenandoah bike tour a week ago. While another group was enjoying the sunshine in Moab, Utah, we were enjoying the autumn colors - when we could see them through the fog - in Virginia. We had a couple days of cold rain, but there wasn't a whiner in the group. They were wonderful.
We've learned our lesson though. We've scheduled next year's tour for the spring. We'll hope the rhododendrons are blooming.
