A trip through Pisgah National Forest on Blue Ridge Parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a National Parkway and All-American Road noted for its scenic beauty. The parkway is America’s longest linear park.
It runs for 469 miles through Virginia and North Carolina, linking Shenandoah National Park to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It runs mostly along the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountain, a major mountain chain that is part of the Appalachian Mountains range.
In this video blog we travel through the scenic Pisgah National Forest in some of the highest points of the Parkway.

The smokey Mountain range is one of the most popular national park in North America, located in North Carolina and part of the Appalachian range. There are several access ways to the Smokey Mountain park from North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.
One such scenic route is through the town of Hayesville, North Carolina at the Georgia-North Carolina border. Together with Hiawasee on the Georgia side, the towns enclose the beautiful Chatuge lake, dotted with lakeside villas and picturesque mountains of the Nantahala Forrest.

Tour of a famous white village in Andalusia, Spain
Zahara de la Sierra is a picturesque village in the province of Cádiz in Andalusia, southern Spain. Perched on a mountain, overlooking a valley and a man-made lake formed by a dam, this beautiful village is conveniently located between Seville and Ronda. It is considered to be one of the pueblos blancos or “white towns” because the overwhelming majority of the buildings are white.
Below is a photo gallery of our brief tour to Zahara.
A brief tour of the white village of Grazalema
Grazalema is a village located in the northeastern part of the province of Cádiz, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra del Pinar mountain range.
During Muslim rule in the 8th century, the area acquired the name of Raisa lami Suli, “town of the Banu al-Salim”, place which passed to Ben-salama, “Son of Zulema and later Grand Zulema”. With the Christian conquest in 1485, the name morphed into Zagrazalema. It became economically important as of the 17th century thanks to the drapery industry which produced the famous shawls of Grazalema.
Today it is a famous tourist attraction and voted one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Enjoy the video below for a brief tour of this picturesque white village in Andalusia.
A music slideshow of the Blue Ridge Mountains
We love the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian Mountain range it’s part of. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic highway that goes through the mountains starting in Cherokee, North Carolina and ending near Roanoke, Virginia.

A music video of the song “New Beginning” at the Versailles gardens
We recorded the song “New Beginning” a while back as part of our “For Rose” EP (available on iTunes). Years later, the theme of the song felt like a perfect blend with the picturesque settings of the Versailles gardens and it’s ominous history lurking around. Thus, this video experiment was born. We hope you’ll enjoy!
