    @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!

    Virginia Thrillers

    by Casey | Posted on October 26th, 2011

    Busch GardensAre you ready to get your spook on? If you have not yet been to the creepiest theme parks around, you have no idea what kind of fright you’re missing.

    For the scaredy cats like me, that’s a good thing, but for you who thrive on the thrill of ghouls and goblins, shake your tail on to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream or Kings Dominion for HAUNT.

    Howl-O-Scream is in its 13th year, and that’s a creepy number, no? So to do it up right, they’ve added more horror than ever. They promise, “the scare is everywhere with new bone-chilling mazes, terrifying shows and gruesome creatures lurking around the park.”

    Busch Gardens and Kings Dominion for HalloweenYeah, it’s that lurking part that gets me. Shiver!

    $63.99/adult; $53.99/child
    Parental discretion is advised.
    Open through Sunday, October 30. 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

    The happy atmosphere of Kings Dominion sours into atmosfear at dusk, as the shrieks and screams signal that HAUNT is coming to life. In my imagination, there is fog settling with that dusk, and the freaks really do come out at night. More shivers!

    Haunt includes 10 haunted mazes, six spooky shows, six scare zones, and of course all of the rides you expect to enjoy at Kings Dominion – it’s the largest Halloween-themed event in the entire mid-Atlantic.

    $58.99/adult; $21.99/child
    Parental discretion is advised.
    Daylight hours at KD offer family-friendly Howl-O-Fest.
    Open through Sunday, October 30, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

    More creepiness can be experienced through frightful ghost tours. These two in Richmond seem to be especially thrilling (cue Michael Jackson’s Thriller intro here).

    Capital Creepers EERIE NIGHTS Ghost Tours of Richmond 
    Through October 29, 10-11:30 p.m.
    $13/person. Under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

    Haunts of Richmond Ghost Tours 
    Through November 5, 9-10:30 p.m.
    $13/adult; $10/child in advance or $15/adult; $12/child at the door
    Appropriate for all ages.
