Where is High Virginia

Many of you are wondering; where is High Virginia?  High Virginia is wherever you want it to be, as long as it is in the mountains of Appalachia.  I know that many individuals are not comfortable without borders and definitions. So, here is my image of High Virginia.

We will begin at Marlinton, WV and make it the SW corner. From there we will follow Rt 219 north to Thomas, WV. When we reach the bridge over the North Fork of the Blackwater River, we will turn right onto Rt 32 and travel through Thomas to the Rt 93 intersection. We will then travel on Rt 93 to Scheer,WV and follow Rt 42 south to Petersburg,WV. In Petersburg we will pick up US Rt 220 at follow it south until we reach Warm Springs,VA. When reaching Warm Springs we will turn onto Rt 39 and head west right back to Marlinton. We now have boundaries and everyone is happy.

As I have gotten older, I now realize that everything that I need to see or experience can be found within these borders. Get out and explore and this region will charm and impress you. Enjoy.

  1. Great article Randy. I feel the same way about the Allegheny Mountains in Pennsylvania. There isn't any need for me to travel anywhere for vacation, but when I do travel returning home is foremost on my mind. Your blog entries are quite informative and entertaining.
