Went out to the Shenandoah Valley to visit friends. Here's a short video I took just a few steps away from their home. That's the North Fork of the Shenandoah River as the autumn leaves start to turn. If you listen carefully as the river flows below, you can hear Amy Mitchell singing the classic song from the bridge.
Yet while we were out looking at the Fall foliage, we drove through Shrine Mont and made a startling discovery. Tall chain-linked barbed wire fences now surround the area around the fields behind the old Hotel and Pennsylvania House and the open pavilion. The barbed wire gave the place a shocking sense of being locked down. What's up with that?
