Dusk from Route 211

Heading west between Luray and the Massanutten Range, U.S. 211 will cross the mountain at New Market Gap and meet U.S. 11 and I-81 at New Market, VA.
According to AA Roads Mid-Atlantic, 211 is a "child route" of U.S. 11, connecting it with Washington, DC. via U.S. 29. When I was young, the portion of 29 between Warrenton and Washington was called 29-211. Today if you wished to travel from Route 11 (in the Shenandoah Valley) to DC, you would make better time on I-66 through Front Royal.
