This is number 5 in a series about our recent anniversary motorcycle trip. If you’d like to start from the beginning, go here. I’ve added links at the bottom of each post to take you to the next installment.
Having touched the Southwestern part of Virginia on a previous motorcycle trip, and knowing the great roads that lay in store, we chose Abingdon, Virginia as the destination for the first three days of our anniversary trip. Abingdon is a beautifully preserved historic town, first settled in the mid-18th century, and known for outdoor activities, civil war history, food, and culture. It lies in a lovely valley filled with working farms, equestrian facilities, and lavish estates.
