Blue Ridge Mountains

The mountains from a distance have a blue tinge hence their name. While they cover much of western Virginia the Blue Ridge term includes a much larger area extending from Georgia into New England..

The Blue Ridge Parkway runs 469 miles the crests of the Virginia peaks linking the two national parks Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains.

Virginia is a beautiful state with lots of forests and mountains tinged in blue. Historical sites abound as much of the Civil War was fought through the center of Virginia. Historic homes like George Washington's Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello nestle in her trees. There is also the blue of Chesapeake Bay, the basin of the Potomac River, and the many National Parks and Monuments to explore. No wonder so many of the people of the Eastern Seabord like to weekend in rural Virginia.



Stonehenge

In western Virginia on top of a hill near Natural Bridge you will find this version of England's Stonehenge. Really!!

Iit is made of styrofoam blocks painted grey and is smaller than the original. Nothing mystic seems to reside here.

Its presence sure brings a smile to your face.
