Linking a picture of Woods Mill post-Camille from Wikipedia. The Nelson

County Wayside, pre-Camille, was down in the area surrounded by "the Y" of Route 6 - we had picnic'd there many a time. I say the wayside was "down in the area" because the Rockfish flowing through there since millennia had cut a low area, as creeks and rivers do. Camille - and the wicked confluence that night of the Rockfish River and Davis Creek - totally transformed Woods Mill, part of which is the "filling in" of Woods Mill, as you see in the picture.

My poor wife, for forty years she's been riding up and down 29 with me, and always through Woods Mill and Lovingston (basically the Davis Creek area), I tell her "look at this...", "look at that...", "it didn't used to be like this..."

If you experienced it, it's something you'll never forget.
