Central Virginia countryside on a mid-December day

 Driving home from Richmond, we decided to take Rt. 250 through the beautiful Virginia countryside on a beautiful mid-December day. Both sides of the road were lined with the winter woods.

 Rt. 250 going west toward Charlottesville.

 Kents Store? Paging Shaun Kenney....

 Crozet at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

 Augusta County ... yay!

 A side trip to the Skyline Drive on the way home gave us an opportunity to see the Shenandoah National Park in December. It's a great time to be alone in the solitude of the mountains....

 It's hunting season....

Descending into the Valley from Afton Mountain ... almost home.
