Hay Field near Front Royal

Bales of hay are a common sight in the Shenandoah Valley. This scene is near the Warren County Airport. In the distance we see the Blue Ridge Mountains and the northern end of Skyline Drive.

Interesting bit of trivia: In the 17th century explorer John Lederer recorded the Virginia Siouan name for the Blue Ridge as "Ahkonshuck."

  2. We seldom see those litty bitty rectangular hay bales anymore. But, the big round ones are nice. Just takes a huge machine to move them!
