In addition to tours on the program, there are a million things to see and do in the region. And its a great time of year for tourism. But you may want to book ahead for a hotel or place to stay.
Environment and energy sites
Powell River Project -- Anyone interested in coal land reclamation should see this. It would have been on Thursday tour list but it was three hours away.
Saltville -- Once home of a great woolly mamouth herd, now a superfund site.
Mount Rogers National Recreation Area -- wild ponies, great hikes and real solitude.
The Virginia Creeper Trail - One of the country's best rails-to-trails project, 20 miles of downhill vistas. A terrific ride.
More coming ! Also, feel free to add comments and suggestions. -- Bill Kovarik
