The New River flows hither and yon in the southwest part of Virginia as well as North Carolina and West Virginia. I'm told that this river is one of the oldest in the US and one of the most scenic. I had a few minutes before a baseball game and so raced over to a park in Radford, VA, to get a few shots. I found a peaceful and powerful river flowing from south to north with small "rapids" right in the middle of the Radford community. This is taken from a small creek that's a tributary to the river.
