Rusty Leaves


This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “rusty” –

Rusty leaves signals the autumn change.

This was taken along the Snickersville Turnpike in Northern Virginia.  This turnpike was originally intended to connect the Shenandoah Valley to Loudoun County in northern Virginia in the 1700’s.  George Washington used to travel it regularly, staying at the inn run by Edward Snickers.  Later, it became one of the first toll roads in Virginia and was the site of a number of Civil War skirmishes up and down its entire length.
