James River

2017 OptOutside Hike

This year after Thanksgiving my family went for an #OptOutside hike in the James River Park System in Richmond on Black Friday.  The weather was beautiful for a hike and we spent about 2 hours going around Belle Isle and the Potterfield bridge.

2016 James River Hike With Jess

Jess was in town for the holidays and with it being such a nice day I showed her the new pedestrian bridge over the James River and we retraced the hike I did early this month.  We ran into Lauren and Patrick who took a couple pictures of us.

Richmond’s New Tyler Potterfield Bridge

Last night in Richmond was the grand illumination and the opening of the new Tyler Potterfield Bridge connecting Brown’s Island to the Manchester Flood Wall on the other side of the river.  I got out there first thing in the morning to check it out and ended up doing a loop over and around Bell Isle.  It’s a nice bridge and it has many more incredible views of the city and the river.

James River Rapids Snow

I had always wanted to see the river after a snow and finally trudged my way all the way to Pony Pasture Rapids Park to get this shot around midday today:

James River Sunset

This was the scene as the sun was setting behind the 288 bridge on the James River this evening.  Such a nice night on a weeknight for a cruise!

Pony Pasture High Water

This afternoon the James River crested around 15 feet according to the Westham gauge.  The last time the water was up past this level was January of last year where it crested around 18 feet. Here are some scenes from Pony Pasture Rapids Park and Riverside drive earlier this afternoon.
