Them Thar Hills

Varina to Ruther Glen

Out the door by 8am this morning in the nice cool air. Back on the Virginia Capitol Trail. It meanders an extra three miles through some gorgeous greenway. You can head straight down the highway but the path is much prettier.

Such stately homes in Virginia. You really feel the history here.

Coming into Richmond. Apparently the South part of town used to be the poor part but they are in the midst of bringing it up to speed. Construction was evident all along the path. Lots of condos!
