​With sweeping mountain vistas in the Southern Gap area of Buchanan County, we are home to some of the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets you will find anywhere. When the mist rises off the mountains in the early mornings, we daresay there is nothing more beautiful. And at night, our starry skies are unparalleled.

Birds of hundreds of species frequent our mountains and offer bird watchers a birding experience that many of our local birders claim is second to none.
