Get Ready to Get Wet This Summer!

The Fodder Trot Trail Corn Maze will be under way before you know it and this year’s theme is the NEW RIVER! The maze will include lots of neat river features and information. ISI has helped with signage and banners and even the website for Corn-Central, USA.

We’re joining the New River bandwagon, this summer with the National Geographic New River Blueway Maps. These Waterproof, Tear-resistant Maps are the best we’ve ever seen. They follow the entire length of the New from North Carolina to West Virginia. Nat-Geo has produced a functional map no clear-water canoe enthusiast should be without.

We also now carry The New River Atlas, a book by the Virginia Canals & Navigations Society that details the New River along its path from its Blue Ridge head waters to the Kanawha River. According to the Society’s website, the book includes lots of science, history and “the best river maps EVER.”

Come to the Blue Ridge this summer to wiggle your toes in the cleanest, clearest water on the planet, and stop by Imaging Specialists for your all your navigational needs!
