The waters are beginning to recede now, but yesterday and the day before the James River was a raging torrent. I’m always amazed, when the water is as high as it was, how many paddlers are willing to brave rapids like Hollywood and Pipeline. It’s a stroke of luck if you happen to be on Belle Isle or the Pipeline when they come through. RichmondOutside.com friend Chris Johnson was in just such a position Monday (on Belle Isle). Click “Continue “Reading” to see his pics. And that reminds me: We love great photos here at RichmondOutside. If you happen to be out and about in Central Virginia and you catch something worth sharing, shoot us an email. We’ll proudly put your work on display.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
