Journey Down the Shenandoah042609

Day 10 - Strasburg

Today is Sunday and it is hot on the river. A good day to be at the river and there are many people scattered along this stretch of the journey enjoying the river in boats, canoes, kayaks, tubes, rafts or by fishing, swimming or just relaxing.

Because of the more people around there was less wildlife. Clouds started to move in by the afternoon making the lighting better for scenics. I have an image of a group of turtles and the railroad bridge with Signal Knob in the background.

I just want to give a quick thanks to the Friends of the North Fork for a great dinner and cold drinks at their annual meeting. Thanks to everyone at the group for what you all are doing and to the members that help support them and all the volunteers.

I am back out for another day and this time it is to Strasburg or swamp....
