A Note from the Publisher

Hidden Valley Lake in Winter
Hidden Valley Lake in Winter

Thank you for reading our third issue of Mountain Peeks. We have received positive reviews of past issues, and advertisers are happy with responses as well. This regional magazine is about the various people, places, and things that make far Southwest Virginia interesting and one of the best places to live anywhere. We “peek” into our region’s history, issues, plans, projects, promises, and future from a different perspective than most publications. We reach about 45,000 readers in print and several thousand more online here at www.mountainpeeksmag.com.

The work of local outdoor photographers is featured throughout this issue. Other photographers will be featured in Issue Four as well. If you wish to submit an article or photo(s) for consideration, you can e-mail us at editor@mountainpeeksmag.com or snail mail it to Mountain Peeks, P. O. Box 1259, St. Paul, VA 24283. Your submission should be about Southwest Virginia, including broader issues that impact the region. The running of any story is at our sole discretion, but each will be given a good reading, and you will be appreciated for submitting it.
