Mountain laurel blooms beautifully.
My wife and I camped for three days in the Big Meadows, and fished brookies in the Rapidan and Conway Rivers.
Driving to the Rivers, we passed by tranquil Virginian farm land.
There were rough mountain roads we had to drive through to reach the Rivers. My car could barely make the trips.
The middle and lower section of both rivers in the mountains are typical big-boulder streams.
Though the driving was tough, we were nicely rewarded.
