    @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!

    September in Virginia

    by Tom | Posted on August 24th, 2011

    Clarksville Hydroplanes

    Racing at the Clarksville Hydroplane Challenge

    Hopefully all that earthquake business is behind us now. Not something we see every day, uh, hundred years here in the Old Dominion.

    And even though hurricane Irene is heading this way, I’m really more focused right now on shedding this August heat and enjoying September, now only a week away!

    Our September here is still shirt-sleeves warm, but cool enough to seriously enjoy the many, many outdoor festivals and events throughout the state.

    Here are some highlights:

    Labor Day: Kick off the month with a Labor Day weekend event (or deal).

    Onancock: Onancock Harborfest – Sept. 9-10
    Begins with the Second Friday Art Stroll and includes an outdoor concert at the wharf, a 5K run, kayak/canoe race, Critter Parade, Rubber Duck Race, Great Paper Boat Race, and still more on Saturday.

    Bristol: Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion – Sept. 16-18
    Twenty-two stages of live music, 16 indoor venues and a children’s stage on Saturday.

    Clarksville: Clarksville Hydroplane Challenge – Sept. 24-25
    A fan-friendly race event where boats take to Buggs Island Lake/John H. Kerr Reservoir and compete on a one-mile, oval course. Great viewing from the causeway and local bridge!
