  Stumps over the Shenondoah
by Geoff_Wright

Favorite thing: I'm not sure just when the toll bridge across the Shenondoah river was first built. It was certainly here at the beginning of the Civil War, and I've seen it in a photograph taken in 1896. Well, all that remains now are these old piers, which actually look in very good order.

The river here is in flood, but usually there are rocky outcrops visible on the Virginia side (the far shore).
