Scenic View - In Fog

Scenic View - VDoT Workers' Memorial

Scenic View - From VDoT Memorial


This morning I headed for Charlottesville, Virginia. Barb decided to stay one more night in Cherry Hill Campground. I had a very nice drive through some scenic countryside. I made several stops along the way to get brochures, eat lunch and view the scenic overlooks.

At one of the overlooks there was the VDoT Workers' Memorial, which was erected to honor Virginia state highway workers who have lost their lives while serving the Commonwealth's travelers. The profiles reflect the diverse workforce and the "missing Worker." It was dedicated on September 17, 2004

I arrived in mid-afternoon at the Charlottesville KOA and paid for three nights. It is near Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, the 200-year-old Michie Tavern, James Monroe's Ashlawn and Shenandoah National Park. I probably will have to extend my visit if I see all of this.
