This is Pony Pasture Park.
This is one of our favorite places to go in the Richmond Virginia area. This is a photo of Pony Pasture Park at dawn. There are stairs that will take you right down to the river and you can walk across the James at this point. We go with a picnic lunch and wade out to one of the huge boulders. From there you can wade, swim, raft or just plain relax and listen to the rushing waters. Richmone VA is the only city in the US with Class IV rapids through the middle of the city. We love this place. The water is warm and clear, lots of rocks and formations and it is free.
We are going there tomorrow in the early morning to swim, picnic and read. Just wanted to share a bit of urban farmgirl heaven this morning.
