In my Sunday column in the Times-Dispatch, I tried to offer a little historical context for Richmond being honored by Outside Magazine as it’s “Best River Town.” When you’re paddling Pony Pasture, running on the Buttermilk Trail or putting your boat in at Ancarrow’s Landing, it’s easy to forget how far the river and the city have come together. Once you have that context, it makes the award all the more impressive.

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?
