While I grew up in Pennsylvania on the Allegheny Plateau, I've always considered myself a child of Appalachia. As a kid, the only place we ever vacationed was the Great Smoky Mountains, and it remains something of a second home to me. Now my brother lives in Virginia and I get to explore the mountains of Old Dominion as well. From Maine to Georgia, the mountains are calling and I must go!
