Shot Tower Historical Site/Foster Falls/New RiverTrail State Park
Lens: DA 15 Ltd/F35-70 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Austinville, VA USA

A true shot tower for making buckshot and bullets on the edge of the New River and the 57 mile long abandoned N&W rails to trail route. Just a mile north on the trail is Foster Falls where the old mining company hotel is in the midst of interior and exterior renovation. The old Jackson ferry is now a real bridge and the old furnace sits across the former rail bed from the hotel.
