For history lovers, Newport News Park is the site of some of the best preserved Civil War fortifications, earthworks and redoubts in Virginia, and is a designated stop on the official Virginia Civil War Trails network. There are signs on the trails explaining different battles.
We came across some wildlife--a mole poked its head out at the wrong moment as we were walking by. PG snatched it up, shook it and killed it. At the end of the trail, we came across 4 deer. Hounds that instinctively want to chase game are very excited when they come into contact with deer! And the deer are so used to people--they didn't even run away. An exciting end to the walk!
When we go back, we're going to walk on the White Oak Trail. It's a 2.4 mile trail around the lake. Maybe we'll do that in the fall when the leaves are changing--it should be beautiful!
Wish you were here!
