"Blue Ridge Spring"
9 by 6 inches
By Linda L Martin
When in my high-school years, there were still places in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia that had not been developed. Wide valley views and hollows between the mountains, that held seemingly never ending vistas, unbroken by power lines or roof tops.
As you drove down valley back roads, against the foot hills, small towns with churches schools, general stores and fire departments just seemed to appear around a bend, only to disappear once you rounded the next.
I spent my early college years and, a few years after, riding on mountain trails through out the valley with friends. My hope had always been to have a place nestled in the valley, with changing seasons and horses that saw you and came to you whether you had a treat or not, just because they liked your company.
