A view from the long valley below the Bee Rocks…(I am sitting on a 100 ft, earthen dam which is the backstop for my gun range).

This is a view from a hillside behind my house looking down at what’s left of Reuben Judah’s farm (from my latest novel, The Prophet of Cobb Hollow). This small house, barn and the remaining out buildings belonged to Reuben’s adopted father. The old Cherokee, Three Crows.

A closer picture of what’s left.

That is certainly God's Country for sure!

Now I'm more jealous than I ever was.

This is pic shows what’s left of Tom Judah’s cabin which sits left of Three Crow’s barn, (from the novel, Scars of the Prophet). It was my favorite hunting stand at one time, sadly a few years ago, during an ice storm…a tree branch took it out. But like us all, though broken, it still remains.

A quiet rest with my reflection(s) before heading home…

I don't take life or this scenery for granted...:smile:

Pretty country up there in the Shenendoah valley.

I like your neck of the woods a wee bit better...far more rugged. :smile:

Gsniper 3 November 2016 13:05

Much less populated, but the Shenendoah or New River valleys are still both kick ass places to live.

Must agree...I've climbed poles and put up wire from Covington, Low Moor and down through Goshen and the Jennings Branch area. Always loved it.

Bit north of me, but pretty country. I'm just off the parkway between Floyd and Hillsville. Meadows of Dan is about the best reference I can give ya.

Ok...I know the area. Do they still pump sunshine in on Friday and Sunday? :smile:

Gsniper 3 November 2016 15:13

Yeah, but it's heavily taxed now.

Thanks for sharing the pics Mingo.

Nice photos. Beautiful country.

Mingo, you are an artist, brother.

I finally got around to reading "Scars of the Prophet". Another damn fine read from a talented author. Thank you for the work Mingo Kane. I can't wait to report on the next.

Thanks for the pictures. I really enjoyed The Prophet of Cobb Hollow and Scars of the Prophet. You managed to paint a vivid picture of the men and land.

Just finished 'Scars of the Prophet'.
Loved it. Brought back some memories, both good and bad.
Can't wait to read the others.
Keep up the good work, brother.
