Almost Heaven


West Virginia



Blue Ridge Mountains


Shanendoah River


Life is old there.


Older than the trees.



Younger than the mountains.



Growin like a breeze.


Country Roads.




Take me home.


To the place, I belong.



West Virginia.



Mountain Momma.


Take me home.


Country Roads.

All my memories.


Gather 'round her.



Miner's lady.



Stranger to blue water.



Dark and dusty.


Painted on the sky.


Misty taste of moonshine (or hamburgers)


Teardrop in my eye.Country Roads.Take me home.To the place I belong.
West Virginia


Mountain Momma.
Take me home.
Country Roads.


I hear her voice.


In the morning hour she calls me.


The radio (or campfire songs) reminds me of my home far away.



And drivin down the road,

I get a feelin




that I should have been home



Yesterday.



Yesterday.



Country Roads.



Take me home.

To the place.


I belong.


West Virginia.

Ali, you're great. Very cool post. I'm going to do that same thing you did, but to the song, "I'm too Sexy" I may have to use lots of pics of Missy.

Hey, I live by Utah Valley University! When things settle down I will return to teach there.

Those are beautiful pics. I love the country. Cool way to visualize Denver's song.

That was fun to see and read. I love John Denver, he reminds me of my dad and Kermit the Frog, don't ask me why.

Seriously, Ali, is there anything you can't do? You are an amazing, creative genius! And with 4 kids ... how do you find time?
