Exploring Charleston, West Virginia (State Capital) June 19-23, 2017
Here are some of the things I saw on a recent trip to the West Virginia State Capital (Charleston) and South Charleston, WV. In South Charleston you will see the 33' tall Native American Burial Mound in the center of South Charleston, trains, a tour of town and a brief time lapse or two. In Charleston I tour the Capital area, walk along the Kanawa river, encounter many friendly curious squirrels. Charleston has no shortage of squirrels. I check out some of the trees and buildings, read some of the history, and even see people dancing in the street, while a band is playing dancing in the street. Along the way I pass the Governor's Residence. There is also a little bit of a drive between South Charleston, and Charleston.
I have done my best to remove voices and images of others I may have been with. If you are in this video, or your voice is in this video and you would like it edited out, just comment with the approximate time (minute and second) where this occurs. (If you just don't like it or have nasty comments, please don't post them.)

Virginia Beach by Drone
Took the DJI Spark to Virginia Beach with me this weekend and took the drive to 60th street so that I could get some shots of the water (anywhere closer to the hotel is a No-Fly-Zone due to the Naval Air Space just down the street, although AirMap is getting authorization through the FAA soon). Hope you guys enjoy!
Forgotten River Ghost Town: Abandoned America

In today's Abandoned America, we explore the forgotten town of Thurmond, West Virginia. Laying within the New River Gorge, Thurmond was once a rich and thriving Boom town. After coal began to move away from the gorge, so did the residents. What's left of the town are a few buildings and railroad tracks.
