Big Moccasin Valley--Scott County, Virginia

On Thanksgiving Day, we went to my husband's family home.   It is located in the Big Moccasin Valley in Scott County, Virginia.  I want to share some of the photos that I took of that gorgeous area.  The quality of some of the photos is not wonderful because I was taking some of the photos as we were going down the road!

To enlarge the photos, click on them. 

I love that mountain range.  It follow the road all the way to his parent's home.


Those cows need shorter legs on one side to stand on that hill!
