YES!

It's too bad they closed the roads along the creeks up there years ago. From my foggy memory, one of those creek crossings along the Conway would be difficult...at least riding solo. Devils ditch has steep banks on both sides. That road had old roads off of it that led up into SNP. That may be part of the reason they closed them. The lower part of the road along the Rapidan was washed out back in "96".
There's a road along the ridge East of the Rapidan that is open and fun!

You don't say... would this be it in the pic below? There's not some kind of "Breaking Bad" activity going on is there?



And I'm glad you got the tag although I have to admit when I saw that you'd snagged it, at first I was all like:

Nice. Took a minute for me to recognize the tag spot. Then realized I had been on that catwalk many years ago. Creative spot!

Northwestern VA Tag!

GRAB : Woodstock Water Tower

Raining pretty hard over Woodstock, moved the Tag south and West



So...having probably 1000 tags is no guarantee of a mistake free tag. Rode to new tag only to realize I pulled a "bwalsh" (leaving grab without securing mascot). So, expecting to find the duck smashed to bits, I rode all the way back in the rain, retrieved duck in tact, and returned to new location...
