Actually, it wasn't too bad, especially since an early start helped me beat the traffic (I am actually staying closer to Baltimore than DC). Although the sky was clear when I set off there was thick fog when I got to Shenandoah NP, and I considered aborting. Just as well I didn't, as when the road got high enough the sun came through - mixture of bright sun, blue sky, fog on the lee side of the hills, and of course autumn (fall) colours made for a great day. I gave the G1 quite a workout. Of course there were a few other "leaf peepers" but congestion was not too bad. Although the majority had digitals, I was gratified and slightly surprised to see how many were using film SLRs - typically manual focus.

Just wish I had room in my bags on business trips to bring the Horseman 4x5!
