Our route from Culpeper took us through Shenandoah National Park to Harrisonburg. From Harrisonburg we were hoping to take Forest Service roads through George Washington National Forest. Unfortunately, they believe in gates out here so there weren’t really any roads to take.
We had lunch at Seneca Rocks before making the final push to Youghiogheny Lake. The highlight of the drive was Route 72 in West Virginia from Red Creek to Hambleton, it was a really cool twisty one lane road through the hills above a river. We made a quick pass through Maryland but did find a Mennonite bake sale and bought some pumpkin bread to take to Larry & Kim’s house. We tried to buy some steaks for dinner in Friendville, Maryland…but the marketplace there had some pretty sad looking steaks.
Up at the lake, we all relaxed and played some pool while Sprocket terrorized Fritz and Crystal, Larry and Kim’s dogs. After a nice evening, we all headed for bed.
