The Journey Continues...

Virginia

brought us out toward central Virginia. One stop was in Lynchburg, VA.

SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE, VA
The journey out into central Virginia was to visit Smith Mountain Lake, located
a little East of Roanoke. The man made lake has a very unique fire-Rescue department
that is fully water based. The department is all volunteer and operates 8 boat stations
around the lake. We were fortunate to have been able to get a great tour of most of
the stations and boats on a beautiful chilly February day thanks to Chief Todd Ohlerich.
