Here’s a sweet video to brighten your Thursday. Friend of the program and executive director of rafting at Riverside Outfitters, Dave Fary, shared this clip with us he made yesterday. In it he and some buddies paddle from a creek in his backyard, under Powhite Parkway, all the way down to the James. How Richmond is that?

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?
