US Road Trips...Blue Ridge Parkway on the List

Floyd County, Virginia....A very special place.

I love this place, Floyd County, Virginia. It is hard to put my finger on the one particular thing that grabs me because there are so many, but as we prepare for the tourist season, I am constantly reminded of
all the other things going on around me, besides Mountain Song Inn that make it so special here.
The following link, http://floyd-landsake.blogspot.com/, will lead you to one of the many special events
that the local are privy to but maybe not the tourist. There is such a love and respect for the land that it is often difficult for me to even express to travelers that visit us what I even mean. So I often find myself linking rather that writing a blog that express so much more than I can say. Please take the time to read
the link I have given you today.
