It's that time of year!  Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park is frequently closed in poor weather. The Drive can go from open to closed and back quickly. Call before you go -- (540) 999-3500 (option 1, and option 1 again) for a recorded message that will tell you whether the Drive, or the section you are interested in, is open.
