  • When I was released from active duty at Ft Bevoire VA, My wife and I traveled downt the Parkway back to Florida. The beauty and splendor was amazing and changed with every curve. I believe the first day we made about 30 miles since we stopped at every lookout and marveled at the scenes. God certainly used his paint brush in wide strokes to create such an amazing wonder. I would love to go back.

  • Your poll sucks.Your hitting a certain type and class of outdoor types –
    Extremes. You have lost your way on who your readers and supoporters are.
    Times do change but your have become narrow in your scope. Time to move on.

  • I notice that Mossy Creek is listed as both a Private Fly Fishing Access and a Public Fly Fishing Access. It is a Public access and should not be listed in both categories. Thank you.

  • We have many people staying at wintergreen, va. for our wedding next week and all through this, Wintergreen has been so helpful, accomodating, etc. It has been a pleasure working with them. We have been to many ski resorts, and Wintergreen is one of the most beautiful, no matter what season.
