Draper Mountain

Just outside of Pulaski, VA, is Draper Mountain - named for John Draper.  His wife and sister-in-law were captured from this mountain by the Shawnee in 1755 and taken away to the Ohio River Valley. His sister-in-law escaped but his wife did not. He found her six years later, ransomed her from the Shawnee, and returned to this area to live. I'm in the Blacksburg, VA, area looking for scenery...and it's EVERYWHERE! A teeny bit overwhelming. Most of my time is spent at baseball games but sometimes I just stop and take photos.
