cenic RIVES SARAH HAUSER by Sue Bland ` Blue Ridge Parkway, Waynesboro The Old Dominion is one of the earliest places Europeans explored in the New World and if you drive Virginia's scenic byways you might just feel as if you've entered another time and place. About the Writer Sue Bland lives near Ashland, a Virginia Main Street Community and railroad town between Richmond and Fredericksburg. She writes about her beloved Virginia in Washington, D.C. area print and online media. 14 Creative geniuses have found a way to move heaven and earth to build the scenic roads of Virginia.

You may enter them from points east and west, or at the northern and southern Virginia points of Front ` placeholder for Royal and Galax. bikes sunset An author once told me
