2011 Jim and Sandra Schmid walk with Willow on the Virginia Creeper Trail – Abingdon, VA

Sandra and I had driven up from Tallahassee, FL with our new puppy Willow for the 13th National Scenic and Historic Trails Conference in Abingdon, VA. The Partnership for the National Trails System hosts the biennial conference. I was the Administrator for the Florida National Scenic Trail at this time. The conference was held in May so we all could participate in the annual Appalachian Trail Days Festival held in nearby Damascus, VA. We walked Willow on the section of Virginia Creeper Trail near Abingdon, VA.
