PULASKI CO., Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia’s State Parks offered First Day hikes. And in western Virginia some hardy souls kept their date with the outdoors.

Claytor Lake State Park was cold and gray, with a stiff breeze and misty rain Friday morning.

Judy and Mac McCord are frequent visitors who volunteer at the state park and said they enjoy the experience year round.

“Not a lot of birds out today,”Judy McCord told us. “But it’s fun to see the park in different kinds of weather and different times of the year,” Mac McCord added.
