Blogging from A to Z 2018: A for Appalachia

No fooling, I am back participating in the Blogging from A to Z April (2018) Challenge. Starting on April Fool's Day and on a Sunday. It is Easter as well. My post today isn't about April Fools, Sunday or Easter. It is inspired about my upcoming Battle of the Bands I will have on the 15th.

Today's post is about Appalachia. It's a region I've spent some time in. The region is more centrally located than the whole Mountain Range (hill range for you true Mountain lovers).

Both places in the videos I have spent some time at and have many fond memories of some fun adventures.

The Great Smoky Mountains are included in the region..

So many great people there, adventures by foot, raft, and skis. Just a small taste of Appalachia.

You are so creative! Did you really go white water rafting?

Mike said...

Yes on that river probably 4 or 5 times.

I love the region and would like to go back to live there. It's much better than California though if you removed all the crapheads from Cali then this wouldn't be a bad place to live.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a photo taken near Marion, VA. Marion is one of those fantasy places where I wish I could figure a way to relocate there. The town is kind of so-so, but the surrounding areas are so beautiful.

Glad to see you doing A to Z in 2018!
