West Virginia, a landform gem
Appalachian mountains (sort of just north of them). These hills are so uniform and if they were covered in snow might look like a cloud deck. Just about 60 miles south of Charleston West Virginia.
Charleston, West Virginia. Capital of West Virgina the river that runs through it is the Kanawha river. It would be amazing to see how all these landforms have come to be. The river valleys carving out rocks creating valleys for vegetation and people....man I love it.
Looking north towards Charleston, WV
Just south of Charleston, WV. Across this whole area open pit mines are everywhere and in some places the complete tops of the hills have been sliced right off. Its actually a concern for the environment (obviously) and here is a link to the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition.
