We try to go hiking as much as we can. Our 2005 trip to
"The Barn" at Elbow Lane Luray, VA included hiking with and without the Bassets. The Barn is Pet Friendly, and we highly recommend staying. For Couples only, no limit on pets. We did have Biko with us too, but only because he was so small. Too much for Grand-mom to handle.

Barbara and Henry Espenhorst, owners of The Barn, keep a scrapbook to record each visitor.
You make your own entrys, and they add the photo later.
The statue in the background was sculpted by Debbie, and was a gift to the Espenhorst's this year, while arriving for our third stay at The Barn.

We took the Bassets where????????

This trail had a beautiful gorge.  With no rain in a while, no waterfalls were to be found.
