Scenic Lynchburg, Virginia

About two weeks ago, at the of end the semester at Central Virginia Community College, I took advantage of the clear, sunny skies by paying a brief visit to downtown Lynchburg, which is chock full of historical architecture. The centerpiece is Monument Terrace, which includes several statues, monuments, and bronze plaques memorializing the sacrifices made by earlier generations of soldiers. At the top of the hill is the Lynchburg Museum. The steps not only offer a breathtaking view of the downtown area and the James River below, they are a great way for people who work downtown to get exercise during the day.

Five new photos, including the one above, are posted on the Spring 2010 photo gallery.

Photo gallery updates

In addition, I've been busy reformatting the photo gallery page with separate pages for each blog category and new drop-down menus for each year. I also reformatted some of the older ones such as the Richmond 2009 page, making them interactive and quicker to load. I just added three more photos from our class field trip to Richmond last year to that page. (Unfortunately, I didn't bring a camera to this year's field trip.) I will tackle the rest of the photo galleries over the next few weeks.
