Walton's Mountain Museum caching; Schuyler, Va.
















Are you old enough to remember the television program The Waltons? It was one of our favorites when I was in high school and college. My parents particularly enjoyed it as it described the time they were growing up in the rural southland. While on a recent trip to central Virginia we had the chance to go see the Walton Mountain Museum in Schuyler (pronounced Skylar). It is situated in an old school house. This was a special time for my wife as one of her best memories is that of accompanying her mother on a trip to this place before she passed away some years back. We took a route recommended on the museum website to get there but on our way back south we cut through on what was described as the crocked road. No problem with that. It gave us a chance to see the Rockfish River and the changing leaves, not to mention allowing us to stop and pick up Farrar Bridge (GC100E1). This one was located at a steel frame bridge over the Rockfish River. We stopped and found the cache right away. We stayed on for about half an hour taking photos on the bridge. The countryside here is beautiful. It was fun to have our daughter and our granddaughter along with us. As we headed down Highway 29 towards Lynchburg we stopped in for Nelson County Rocks (GCW79V), a neat cache hidden in a specially prepared cache. Someday I'll have a nice shop where I can fabricate those neat cache containers.
