we arrived in virginia late yesterday afternoon. after checking in to our hotel, we rushed to this open field to watch the sun set behind the snow covered blue ridge mountains. roanoke is a beautiful little town. we spent today driving across the state and back but settled again for the night in our snowy nook of the city. we're looking forward to exploring downtown tomorrow before heading to north carolina for the weekend. i love visiting these new places, even if for a short time, they always leave a lasting impression. see more of our travels from the past year here.
