I sit on this bench looking at this place of magic, mystery, and beauty. It’s really pretty outside. The days are getting longer, the nights are getting shorter, the birds are singing, blossoms are blooming, and everything around me is green; The outdoors are coming alive, but the world around me is calm. The summers here are quiet, but friendly. Time moves a bit slower here. The hikes, creeks, and New River provide peace and refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Don’t wait to get out in nature to explore. Make time to learn a new art form. Listen to music that sets your soul on fire.  Share what you love with who you love.

I have been looking for love and I’ve found it here, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia: in the land, in the music, in the memories and people. Discover miles of inspiration here. We are explorers in the same sweet place, but at a different time. To each heart it feels new, different, yet ever so much the same. Wherever the road takes you, I hope you will make the most of your time here.
