Page County near the South Fork

Earlier this month we drove through Page County, Virginia, exploring a few back roads and admiring the scenery. The white church is the Leaksville United Church of Christ.  

Not far from there I spotted a sign for a boat ramp and turned into the lane that went down to it. I  watch for these signs because they mean there's access to a body of water, which usually means a photo opportunity. I carry a fishing license just in case a game warden questions my right to park there. 

This bridge carries U.S. 340 across the South Fork of the Shenandoah. The highway crosses the river again in Front Royal and later in Harpers Ferry.

The bridge support at the boat landing had been tagged by those folks who are compelled to leave their mark on public places. The graffiti was not artful at all but I did think this message was worthwhile: Make a memory today that will last a lifetime.


  1. ...a beautiful barn, church and river scenes, you just about covered it. Thanks Linda for sharing, take care.

  2. Hello,

    Pretty views of the park and river. I have been over that 340 bridge hundreds of times on the way to Shenandoah. I like that message. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  3. Lovely river view, and then there's the dirt road as compared to the highway bridge. All are ways to get somewhere.

  4. You've shared some fabulous photographs here.
    The river looks great and I like the shadows in the last photograph.

    Happy June Wishes.

    All the best Jan

  5. You live in a beautiful area.

  6. The woodland path and its shadows...lovely!
