Surveying Her Queendom

During our hikes this weekend, we would always stop and enjoy the views. This particular view is from one of our favorite trails and comes out above a parking lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway (which always amuses the people in the parking lot below). And, of course, Queen Natasha the Evil struck her royal pose while she was surveying her Queendom.

A gorgeous view.
