Leesburg, VA. 83 miles. Grass. Perfect circus weather.

Autumn has arrived officially, the summer seems to linger here in the mouth of the Valley of Virginia where the trees remain green and the cold of the morning gives way to the warmth of mid-day. We are on the smallest circus lot of the season, the elephant trucks literally squeezed inside a horse barn. “It’s a good life if you’re tough enough,” says Barbara Byrd looking at the lot. Tonight we’ll tear down then jump again before morning into Manassas and suburban Washington, D.C.. Aaron Broderick, the ringmaster lives in Maryland. This country is home for him. On Route 15 there are arrows for another circus near Leesburg. In autumn the roads lead south back home.
