Drive west out of Washington D.C. on Interstate 66 and find your way to State Route 601. Then, after a while on the highway, you’ll reach the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. And if you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll probably notice a roadside entrance for something you’ve never heard of before: the mysterious Mount Weather. But don’t try to drive in; the security guards will likely take a very dim view if you do. That’s because there’s a clandestine installation here – one with a dark secret.

In fact, it’s probably best to stay in your car and travel on for another ten minutes to the Horseshoe Curve in Pine Grove for a burger and a beer. And, interestingly, it’s also said that this inn is a favorite haunt of the people who work at Mount Weather.
