50. Virginia’s Adventure Towns: St. Paul with Maddie Gordon, Clinch Life Outfitters

“My husband and I traveled out west and saw wonderful, amazing sights. My favorite thing was coming back into Southwest Virginia, seeing our mountains and knowing that I was home. It was so beautiful. There’s nothing like it being here in the coalfields and the small towns. You know, it’s gorgeous out there. But being back here, it’s a comfort. I just love it.” – Maddie Gordon, Clinch Life Outfitters
