The Virginia Creeper

We heard about this Virginia Creeper last spring and scheduled a trip but got half way their and found out there had been a tornado so we didn't get to go. I guess you could say things work out for a reason because after going this week, I can't imagine it being any more beautiful than it was Tuesday. The kids and Richard had bikes so I rented one at the bike shop where we got on the bus to ride up the mountain. The ride was about 30 minutes to the top and then the fun begins. It was a great 17 miles! I recommend it for everyone who can ride a bike. It's all pretty much down hill so the only thing you have to worry about is a sore tail! haha!

Check out the amazing bridges we got to ride over.

I had to stop when I came through here. It was breath taking as you can see.

We stopped for a little break at the playground so the kids could run around for a little bit.

The trip down took us around 3 hours and I can't wait to go again!
