Today is the first day of Spring. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the bradford pear trees are blooming. Other trees are starting to show leaves.
This is a great time to get outdoors in the mountains. Hike to the many waterfalls, tour the wineries or just relax.
Now would also be a great time to hike to Preachers Rock on the Appalachian Trail near Woody’s Gap.
