"ROANOKE, Va. - We had it all planned. Because the Roanoke Valley is famed for its outdoors offerings, my partner, Lina, and I devised a travelers’ triathlon of sorts. First we would hike on the Appalachian Trail; then, without a swimming hole, we’d rent paddle boats at Carvins Cove Nature Reserve, a short drive from downtown Roanoke; finally, we’d bike on some of the city’s 20 miles of greenways, many running along the Roanoke River. The day before we arrived, it rained. And rained. And rained some more, to the point, we later learned, that the river had crested more than 14 feet."
Wow! Great article about Roanoke from the Boston Globe travel section! It touches on so many things I love about this place!
