I decided to hike to the old site of the once prosperous Shannondale Springs resort that was located along the Shenandoah river in Virginia. Shannondale Springs was a popular resort from the early 1800’s up to just before the American Civil war swept through the area. The Springs was popular with the rich people of that time and hosted most Presidents of the United States that held office during that time period. Not much remains and the undergrowth was getting pretty thick as plants and trees are greening up rapidly this time of year. This property is now in West Virginia and is owned by the State. It is open to the public and has many hiking trails.

About Aquachigger:
I enjoy metal detecting for historical items like gold coins, relics, silver coins, and other buried treasures. I also metal detect for gold and silver nuggets and even meteorites. I like to make videos that promote my choice of lifestyle that includes outdoor adventure,
metal detecting, yapping, searching for river treasure, SCUBA diving, exploring abandoned places, hiking, caving, caring for animals and pets, and observing the things outdoors that often go unnoticed by most people who are not familiar with outdoor adventures and nature. I keep my Youtube “Aquachigger” channel family-friendly and hope you subscribe if you like my style.

BTW, you can also catch me here, https://www.facebook.com/chiggsarmy/ ,but I may get a little edgier there. FB isn’t a place for kids anyway…lol.
