Wilson Creek & the New River


The name Mouth of Wilson originates from a young surveyor named Wilson, who died and was buried in a creek while surveying the line between Virginia and North Carolina in 1749. The creek was henceforth known as the Wilson Creek, the mouth of which empties into the New River where the town was established.

This was a fun evening flight with great skies and almost no wind. I followed Wilson Creek to the mouth of the New River and then came back and looped around the “downtown” area of Mouth of Wilson.
