Outdoor Front Royal

hillside with fences
View from the Outdoor Flea Market 
The town of Front Royal is outdoors-oriented. It's not only the "Canoe Capital of Virginia," it's an Appalachian Trail Community, and the northern gateway to Shenandoah National Park.

I liked the design of this sign for Shenandoah Riverkeeper, a not-for-profit that had a booth at a festival in Eastham Park.

Below are two snapshots I took along the path in Eastham Park. This paved trail runs along the South Fork of the Shenandoah. (Click on an image to see a larger version.)

The final shot has no deep meaning, I just liked the bright umbrella at an ice cream stand.
