Last week Richmond.com’s Phil Riggan wrote up his “Best of the Richmond Outdoors in 2014.” Try as we might to resist, we here at RichmondOutside.com are suckers for year-end lists, rankings and best ofs, and Riggan’s reminds us what a year its been for outdoors lovers in the RVA — and what a year 2015 could be.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that Phil included RichmondOutside.com’s sister company, Terrain360.com, in his year-in-review:

In late April, Richmond-based Outside Ventures, LLC and the James River Association began work on a groundbreaking project to capture scenery along the entire 340-mile length of the James River through high-resolution, 360-degree panoramic images, which resulted in a 360o Tour of the James (see photos of the Richmond test launch).

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?
