Exploring Shenandoah River State Park

Raymond R. "Andy" Guest Jr. Shenandoah River State Park, located in Bentonville, VA - a little ways past Front Royal and the beginning of Skyline Drive - was new to me.  The signage was the most clear and thorough I have ever seen (perhaps a little TOO thorough, with frequent signs nailed to the trees).  It was a nice, diverse hike, with...


river views

sunny fields

and miscellaneous objects.

Volkswalking in Fredericksburg

Volkswalk in Fredericksburg, VA.  What's a volkswalk?  A mapped out walk, usually 5K or 10K (and in this case, 6K).  Can be a group event or a self-guided one.  Kind of like a scavenger hunt.  This time, found flowers, history, and boutiques in Fredericksburg.
