America is a beautiful and wondrous country with many landscapes and corners to get lost in. While traveling to Charleston from Pittsburgh I had the opportunity to stop in West Virginia to enjoy the scenery. West Virginia is the 35th state. Majestic, wild, and free. The rolling mountains and the lush forest of the state are both inviting and daunting. What I enjoyed about this stop was the sheer quietness in the air. Everywhere I went was peaceful. Sometimes the bustling nature of the city can make you forget what quiet actually is. The air was fresh and the people, they were eerily absent.

The wilderness offers one an opportunity to sit and ponder the mysteries of life. The regal nature of the mountains let you know this is God’s country. I did some pondering then looked around and saw that I was in what looked like the set of Wrong Turn and seeing as though I had no cell service, no firearm, and no one looking for me, I thought it best to get back in my vehicle and be on my way.
