In the great state of Virginia, the Shenandoah River cuts a winding valley through the Eastern edge of the Appalachian Mountains creating a picturesque rolling landscape. It only takes watching one sunset from the famous skyline drive to know why they call this place the Blue Ridge. Believe it or not, there is an actual chemical phenomenon that gives the green trees on these hills their blue hue.
Once you see the horizon from the Blue Ridge, you’ll also know why we wanted to create this Color Cloud. The Blue Ridge mountains are gorgeous, and an easy get away for East coast city dwellers to breathe in some fresh air and practice the art of day hammocking. And, lest we forget, it’s also the heart of Virginia wine country. If you’re near the Blue Ridge, it’s worth the drive. Pack a picnic, hit the trail, hang you hammock by a quiet waterfall, and toast the sunset with a bottle of local liquid art. And don’t worry, if you’re far from the actual Blue Ridge. You can still escape for a day to your local trees in whatever Color Cloud combo you’ve got.
Where are you going to escape to this weekend?
