Sunrise over Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. At this site, parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains run almost north-south across the Virginia/West Virginia/Maryland countryside, but the Potomac River has eroded its way through the ridges. This gap hosts the meeting site between the Potomac and the Shenandoah Rivers - both of them are funneled along the ridges until they find a small gap right here. This site also served as a Civil War era munitions depot and was involved in several campaigns, including the Antietam Campaign in 1862 and John Brown’s raid before the war.

DOWN BY THE RIVER

A short film/vlog by me :)

"I have this fucking song stuck in my head, Harry. I don't even know where the fuck West Virginia is located!"

“I have this fucking song stuck in my head, Harry. I don’t even know where the fuck West Virginia is located! Or the Shenandoah River. Or what the fuck a mountain mama is,” Eggsy whines, running a hand through his hair. “Why do songs have to be so fuckin’ cryptic?”

“Are you wondering what a ‘blue corn moon’ is again?” Harry asks as he fights to hide a smile.

“Yes, I fuckin’ am.”

Shenandoah National Park - part of the Blue Ridge province of mountains uplifted when Africa slammed into North America to complete growing Pangaea. Surrounded by valleys that host the Shenandoah River, this long linear park features a single road, Skyline Drive, that can take you almost the whole way across.

This is a short time-lapse video highlighting the best locations in Shenandoah National Park. The park is located in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia and encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s one of the most beautiful national parks across the United States and is known for it’s scenic drive, Skyline Drive, that travels all the way through the park. Shenandoah has everything from cascading waterfalls to spectacular vistas. I hope you enjoy the video and go check out Shenandoah for yourself to find your own spots!

Take Me Home, Country Roads
John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah river
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads

All my memories, gather round her
Modest lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads

I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads

Take me home, down country roads
Take me home, down country roads
