In a word: spectacular.
There are a lot of wonderful backroads in Virginia, and 231 is no exception. We were coming from Sperryville, doing the backroad trip from home to Harrisonburg, and this was a complete surprise. We drove past Old Rag, and the view was absolutely breathtaking. Next time we have to do this on the motorcycle.
And the town of Madison is just asking to be discovered. We are going to have to make a return journey to Sperryville and Rappahanock County. And all those vineyards and B&Bs calling our names.
So many places, so little time, but we’re going to make sure we do our damnedest to hit every one of ’em.
