Spring is a really cool time of year for our area, especially because of all the mountains and trees. Everything is blooming and it’s really awesome to watch. This is the time of year when all the leaves start coming back after staying gray throughout the winter. One of the activities that I really love this time of year is going to the Blue Ridge Parkway and seeing the dogwoods blooming. It doesn’t get much more beautiful and soft than that.
We also have the opportunity to do some biking on the greenway along the Roanoke River area. If you go there, you’ll get to see a lot of bright, beautiful colors coming alive. We also have two lakes on either side of Franklin County: the Smith Mountain Lake and the Philpott Lake. This is the start of the lake season, and lots of people have second homes in the Smith Mountain Lake area. It’s time to get them opened up and ready for the summer season.
This is also the time when we can do some fishing and water sports like kayaking and canoeing at our surrounding rivers. It’s an exciting time for us because we have so many trees, bright colors, and greenery. It gets a little bit gray during summer, so that’s why we like spring the most. If your family loves the water as much as we do, going to the lake and camping is a great idea. It’s not quite as hot during this time of year, and we really love these kinds of activities (especially around the Philpott area where there are lots of campgrounds).
