|Green Cove Station: Black and white and color. A spot, anyway.|

The old railroad bed trail is a pretty good drive from Roanoke and the run is only about an hour and a half, unless you dawdle--which you should--but it's a beaut. My pal Will Milsaps, who lives in nearby Whitesburg, Ky., avoided bad weather and had a truly spectacular run. Wish you'd been there.
