Fauquier Byway

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

When I lived in Warrenton, Virginia, which is on the edge of the Washington, DC metroplex, but not yet submerged in the suburbs, I used used drive this road through rural Fauquier County usually on the way home from the city as opposed to taking the moving parking lot known as Interstate 66. Even when it took longer it was much more of a fun drive, not to mention pleasing on the eye as you can see in this photo. View is to the SW.
