A teacher's love keeps giving after she's gone
There's a newly dedicated green space in Crozet that I will be checking out before long. The 600-acre Patricia Ann Byrom Forest Preserve Park backs up to the Shenandoah National Park.
Mrs. Byrom, who passed away last summer at the age of 77, was a teacher. With the park, founded on land donated by her family, her influence on those young and old alike continues with six miles of trails for walking, horseback riding, hiking, running, and mountain biking as well as other outdoor activities.
The Patricia Ann Byrom Forest Preserve Park in Crozet at the eastern foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains ... take a picnic and check it out soon.
If you go: Patricia Ann Byrom Forest Preserve Park, 6610 Blackwells Hollow Road, Crozet, VA. It is located on the north side of State Rt. 810 between Brown's Cove and Boonesville, Va.
