Log Description

This site is on the Hollingsworth side of the park and located .6 miles down the Bass Bight Trail. This site looks over a quiet meadow nestled in-between the banks of the Shenandoah River and the Massanutten Mountain range looming in the background. The area is home to a variety of animals, including Black Bears, Bluebirds, White Tail Deer, and Wood Ducks. The photos from this site will provide a first-hand look at the changing of the season as well as the interconnected environmental changes between the river, floodplain and riparian buffer to the upland forests.
