Swinging in the New Year

January 8, 2013 2:34pm

Sure, we’re eight days overdue, but nothing says Happy New Year (and bring on spring) like a rope swing on the James. When the winter feels particularly dark and dreary, a pic like this reminds me that good times are never really that far away.


Happy New Year!

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?
