I imagined a sentry’s view down into the valley and thought of troop movements and supply trains. I guess the beauty of the overlook was overcome by the tactical ability to see so much and have my imagination run wild. But then I thought, today, a drone would see this in just a heartbeat. The viewpoint is to the west, not too far south of the Front Royal entrance. Of course, cameras cannot do justice to the grandeur of this view. Not like the rugged, sharp panoramas of the Rockies, but more the powerful expanse of American opportunity. This is actually five photos stitched together to create the panorama.
