    @rbuck65 recently hiked Bearfence #Mountain off of #SkylineDrive, and this was the reward! This #hike is fairly short with a nice payoff. The trail head is near mile marker 56.4 on the Skyline Drive. #photooftheday #repost #epic #hiking #mountaintop #sunset #blueridgemountains #vaoutdoors Don't forget to tag your #Virginia photos with #LoveVA for a chance to be featured here!
    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

    Homes for the Holidays

    by Casey | Posted on December 7th, 2010

    When you’re lacking creativity in your decorating, borrow the brilliant ideas of another, and from another century!

    Mount Vernon welcomes you to tour by candlelight this weekend and next (December 11-12 and 18-19). Sing carols by the fire, and enjoy a warming winter treat, too.

     

    Tuckahoe Plantation

    Tuckahoe Plantation

    Tour three plantation homes along the James River this Saturday and next (December 11 and 18), as they’re delightfully decorated with five generations of Christmas accoutrements.

    If those three only whet your appetite for more of the plantation life, be sure to see Berkeley December 18 and 19! Costumed guides will escort you through the 18th century decor and fresh-cut evergreen displays.

     

    The boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson is open for Christmas tours this weekend (December 10-12). Take advantage of this opportunity to stroll the buildings and grounds of Tuckahoe Plantation by candlelight and torch.

    Speaking of boyhood homes, Stratford Hall is the birthplace of Robert E. Lee and is open this Saturday, December 11, to show off their 1774 Christmas decor. In addition to the tour, visitors are invited to make a “seasonal memento” and witness living history dramas in various rooms of the home.
