New Tag

In keeping with the last two tags, this tag is located close to a trail head in Shenandoah National Park...


The little duck nest is behind the tree with the no dumping sign.....



and covered up...



The tag location is not at the trail head, but at the end of the state road.
The trail up this hollow is a real jewel.
Good Luck

Grab

Grab,

Jewel Hollow Road off Hwy 211 just West of Skyline Drive and at the very end of the road. Little chilly at 9:30 this morning coming over the mountain....but a nice ride....




and the bike pic with Duckie on the top case.......



New tag to follow shortly........

There is a low water bridge that you cross when getting here from 211 and the last time I was on this road the water was flowing about 2 feet over the bridge .....and fast....I chose not to try it......but it did enter my mind...

I would have gone for the tag this morning, and would have been bruced again,() but had things to do around the house.

Tag

New Tag,

Since Duckie has been out in the cold the past few nights, I thought she could use some shelter....and around here there are lots of these coop jumps.....so here she is just under the corner of the jump....



Now all covered up with leaves and a stick....



You can see the jump just behind the bike...Duckie is under the corner closest to the metal gate....It was a beautiful morning for a ride as you can see....



This is what the road looks like in front of the bike....You can tell which way I am heading based upon the shadows.....and it's about 10 AM.




This road heads roughly North and South. If you were coming from the South, the tag location is approximately 1.1 miles after you cross a bridge. If you were coming from the North, the tag location is approximately 2.1 miles. The road itself is a 2 word road. The first word is what Butterfields Lullaby is often know as......although spelled differently. The second word is the kind of car you would have purchased if you did not care about color.

Nice tag and clues! It's tempting to go and grab but I still have things to do around here. A visitation may be in order on the way to Remington.

So even with taking most of the summer, fall and early winter off you are still third in regards to the amount of grabs!

Nice old church.....



There are two sets of steps, RD is beside the steps on the right. Look on the left side at the base of the building.....



And covered up.....



After almost being lunch for the bear, RD decided to hang out at the church during the bad weather.
Clues... You will find this church on a road with two words. The first word is a person that is friendly and considerate; likable. The second word is a wide river valley, usually with a particularly wide flood plain or flat valley bottom. The route number equals 13.
Have fun

Tag,

There is Duckie laying down beside the large tree stump....



Now all covered up with leaves and a stick......



There is the tree stump right beside the road.....



This is what the road looks like.....




The name of this road is the same as the nickname for Maryland. The tree stump itself is located 2/10ths of a mile from the intersection of another road that shares its name with the last name of Dennis the Menace's neighbor.
