I was at Antiem the same weekend as I went to 3rd Winchester. Here we were on a Sunday morning 8" of snow on the ground, 20 mph winds and 24*! And we wern't alone, there were couples out jogging, with unleashed dogs! One park ranger told us there are more joggers than battlefield visitors most mornings.

While the picture submitted above by the CWPT, make some of the trails look nice there were bigger scars, like the almost 50 foot wide cut through the woods. Anyone have a picture of that? I took one but it came out all white, from the snow!

I also understand, I haven't confirmed it,  the VA Outdoors Foundation (who own the 3rd Winchester easement) "slapped the Trust's hand" and Lighthizer apologized for inattention to detail or some such. The NPS talked to the CWPT about the deal and the state archaeologist was asked to write up an assessment of the damage to historic resources for VOF.

Spin, spin, spin.
