Appalachia: 5th – 7th July, 2019

The Monongahela National Forest in central West Virginia felt like the land time forgot. Old cars lined the sides of the roads, rusting near dilapidated sheds. The beams of abandoned barns clung to life in the hazy humid breezes. All around these structures were tremendous displays of nature. It was like man had been trying to fight nature for generations and had finally waved the white flag. It lived up to its motto of Wild and Wonderful.
