It may be January...but snorkel season is just around the corner. I hope to really explore the rivers close to home this year, and I have sites marked throughout the area (western VA). I realized, though, that I don't have a clue when it comes to the upper Roanoke drainage, which isn't far from home and contains a wealth of fantastic species I'd love to see and photograph!
Google satellite and street view images make the South Fork Roanoke River, upstream of the city of Roanoke, look like a definite possibility..all I'm looking for is clarity.
Has anyone snorkeled or sampled it, or can anyone report on clarity? I know there was a convention there a couple years ago (wish I'd been a member then, would have been just down the road).
