Back of the Dragon Driving Tour

We are pleased to announce a return trip to the Back of the Dragon after the fun trip last fall.  The Back of the Dragon is State Route 16 that goes from Marion, Virginia to Tazewell, Virginia in the southwestern part of the State. 

An itinerary is being developed and will be finalized closer to the to the event. We anticipate having three drives: the first on Saturday morning, the next on Saturday afternoon before dinner that evening, and then potentially a third drive Sunday morning. These drives will take you to some of the highest elevations in Virginia.
