Ascent Trip ReportFrom Hampton, we opted to stay off of the interstate and instead traveled along route VA-143, which parallels the interstate and passes through a mix of business and undeveloped areas and woodland. In time we had come upon route VA-238, which we followed "eastbound" (east according to the sign, northbound in reality). We went up a slight rise right onto Crafford Road, then left onto Taliaferro Drive, a dead-end road with some residential homes on it. The highpoint seems to be along the road and in adjoining yards. We stepped out, looked around, then called it good. Our hotel and a nice shower was beckoning us in Williamsburg, the end of a nice enjoyable afternoon of highpoints and history.
