Shenandoah Snow

Near Mount Jackson, VA

We stopped for a moment yesterday west of Mt. Jackson to grab a picture of this scene of a pond covered with snow. It's more recognizable in this photo I took on a snowy day a year ago.

The location is along Mount Jackson Road near exit 273 of Interstate 81. Although all the signs lead tourists through the town on their way to Basye or Orkney Springs, locals use Mt. Jackson Road (CR 703) and South Middle Road as a shortcut to Orkney Grade. I suppose the directional signs were suggested by the town in order to lead visitors past the stores instead of out into the country.

  1. Lots of snow this year. The blue sky against the white snow is really pretty.
