It might be currently covered in snow, but Shenandoah National Park is getting national recognition for its fall foliage from celebrity chef and talk show host Rachael Ray.

The park gets about a quarter-page write-up in this month's issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray, said Heather Muhleman, of public relations firm The Door.

"[The article] is two pages," Muhleman said. "It's actually on five separate places that are mentioned for the best drives...best places to visit in the fall when you're looking for foliage as well."

She said Front Royal is specifically mentioned as a starting point for the trip.

The article states leaves first start changing at the top of the 4,000-foot Blue Ridge mountains, and "then the color moves down as the season progresses."

It suggests hiking the Rose River Loop, motoring down Skyline Drive, eating at Skyland Resort's Pollock Dining Room, and staying overnight at Skyland Resort.

"It's some really great national coverage for Front Royal and for the national park," Muhleman noted.

SNP public affairs officer Karen Beck-Herzog was happy about the recognition for the park.

"We're always excited to have coverage like that, and to let other people know about how wonderful this resource is right here in our backyard," she said this week. "What a wonderful way to get recognition to our region and to the park."

The other destinations highlighted in the article are Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park near Memphis, Zion National Park in Utah, Mono County in eastern California and Lancaster County, Pa.

Shenandoah National Park was briefly shut down earlier this week due to heavy snowfall in the wake of superstorm Sandy.
