Probably one of the most scenic and unforgettable routes in the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia is this mere 3-mile stretch through the Allegheny Mountains called Goshen Pass. The Pass, located twelve miles northwest of Lexington on rt. 39W, has been proclaimed to be "the loveliest spot in Virginia." As you drive through the narrow passage carved out by the Maury River with its steep rocky sides covered with a wide variety of trees, mosses and ferns in their full splendor, it is easy to understand why.
Jodie and I had a nice time yesterday driving and hiking. We were sorry the sun wasn't out but the views were still breathtaking.
It's back to work today, looks like another fun Halloween weekend!
