Almost Heaven

Photos were taken we we drove down West Union, WV while listening to John Denver's Country roads song.

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.
Country roads, take me home,
To the place where I belong,
West Virginia, mountain mama.
Take me home, country roads.
I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday,
Country roads, take me home,
To the place, I belong
West Virginia mountain mama,
Take me home, country roads
Country roads, take me home,
To the place I do belong
West Virginia, mountain mama,
Take me home, country roads.

  3. Ah, lovely memories! Love your photos! Looks like a wonderful trip! Have a great weekend! Enjoy!


  4. Yes, I love that song by John Denver. When you first wrote (while you were still in Korea) that you will be returning to your home in West Virginia, the first thing that came to my mind was that song Take Me Home Country Road by John Denver. He sang a song of a place that is almost heaven. And that was what you might have felt every time you roam the beautiful country side of West Virginia. I hope I can see your beautiful place someday. Thanks for the beautiful post. God bless you all always.

  5. Napatawa ako dito Mommy Rose dahil ito din ang kanta na kinanta ko nung we visited WV few years ago. I don't pero nong andoon na kami sa tuktuk nang bundok ayun na kanta na ako nang kanta while looking up and down sa mga mountain hehe. Like your shots happy weekend!
