    not sure if you've done this run yet, but 33 is a great stretch of road. Take it into Seneca Rocks area. Some beautiful riding. Continue east on 33 into Harrisonburg, VA. Runs you right thru the George Washington Nat'l Forest as you're coming into Harrisonburg. All I can remember is there is a stretch a mile long or so, of 200ft tall trees that line the road on each side that form a canopy that you ride thru. As my riding buddy used to say, that George Washington sure knew how to put a forest together. Gorgeous ride.
