I figured id drop him off close to home but with an amazing view of Signal Knob. I could have taken a pic of that, but then id go and ruin it! This road isnt a "happy mountain". Quite the opposite. Possibly in a bad mood. Hey, I suck at clues for this one..

Duck is at the left fence post between the two stumps.

Well done sir!

I noticed the tell tail trails of that solution on 340 heading into Front Royal a while ago. I got caught behind a couple of cars stuck behind one of the trucks dumping that solution on the roads last winter. I'll turn around next time.

I know I've been by there 100's of times but still can't place the exact location.

probably not. you may be thinking of another location. this road is just a small loop, about a mile or so long. my tires on gravel are down-right scary. but it doesn't stop me. hahahaa.

if it's still light out, i will grab a pic facing the other way on that road and it should help some.

This is the view about 1/4 mile from the duck.

Unintended, if you add the 3 numbers of the road up they equal my lucky number; 13.

I haven't studied it very hard, but i don't recognize this road.

Which makes sense when u mentioned its a 1 mile loop. I don't often hit short loops unless by accident or necessity.

So many roads have a view of signal knob. If it wasn't so cloudy today i would have posted a pic of signal knob from my porch 9 miles away.

and after a closer view on google maps I have found the EXACT location.
