|"Ma and Pa" at an old cabin in the Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area; (I WANT that cabin!!!! ha)|
Today, I'll share just a tiny piece of that trip with you---with more details to come I'm sure in the future... Above is a photo of George and me on the steps of a fantastic old cabin (Elizabeth Furnace Cabin).

|FORT VALLEY --- with the Massanutten Mountains in the distance;|
SO--after leaving the Elizabeth Furnace area, we headed south into this fantastic little valley, FORT VALLEY. Note photo above... Also---note the fog at the far end of this photo... We traveled across the mountain there (heading for Skyline Drive) ---and we encountered that fog.... Photo of the fog below!!!

As you can tell, we had a busy 4 days (2 days on the road and 2 days making memories)... We did accomplish one of our goals --which was to get alot of hiking done. We finished the 7th --with about 3 miles on our pedometers and on the 8th, having gone 4 miles... That was great considering all of the other things we got to do.

Hope you had a great week... I'm not sure how much time I'll have to visit you --but I will do my best!!!! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you on MONDAY.
