Three narrow, twisting, turning roads wind their way into Pleasant Valley. They lead past lush green meadows and under the gold and auburn canopies of leaves fashioned by the trees lining Pleasant Valley, South Pleasant Valley and Hughes Shop roads.On a recent afternoon, hawks circled overhead in a bright blue sky. Horses, miniature donkeys and cattle grazed in fenced pastures next to some homes and farms. Mallards and Canada geese glided placidly across the community pond.The Carroll County community appears to live up to its name.
