Many Loudouner's are unaware that just over the ridge lies a sprawling and peaceful monastery. Along the Shenandoah river on the north side of Route 7, you will find the Clarke County Monastery. This tranquil place is partially open to the public. Various homemade products and religious literature can be purchased in the welcome center. This photo was taken on the west side of the property, just off the beaten path (as you would expect from this blog).
