April 17th through the 25th was this year's annual National Park Week when the usual entrance fee is free. To celebrate I headed to my closest national park, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. I drove Skyline Drive, climbed Blackrock, and wandered around Big Meadows. Shenandoah is the first national park I ever went to, and it always gives me a lot of comfort to be there especially when I go by myself. Of all the parks I've been to it feels the most like home, if you could ever even try to claim something so grand. I tried to capture that duality of both the intimate and infinite with these photos.
