Purple and white wild flowers that grow prolifically on the roadsides throughout the Shenandoah Valley. Here are a few of the sights of Swoope in western Augusta County earlier this week.
The age-old question of why does the black snake cross the road … but on this particular day, the first significant sunshine we had in a while after days of rain, I think this little fella was soaking in the warmth from the pavement. He raised his head and looked at me when I stopped to take his picture.
The railroad tracks are heading straight for Buffalo Gap and the Appalachian Mountains.
Swoope Road (Rt. 876) is closed for road repairs with a detour through the one-lane gravel Waldrop Road (Rt. 860).
