This Underrated Park Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Virginia

Did you know that the Shenandoah Valley was once an ocean floor? It’s nearly impossible to imagine. The Natural Chimneys of Mount Solon stand as a testament to millions of years ago, when the present-day valley was submerged beneath a great inland sea. When most people think about the Shenandoah Valley, they think about the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling hills, and the fertile land. That’s what makes Natural Chimney Regional Area such an underrated spot. These tower-like formations look completely out of place, and yet they’ve been around nearly as long as the mountains themselves. You’ll want to plan a visit to this park as soon as possible.

Take a look at this video for some amazing aerial views of Natural Chimneys:
