New Parks Service Video: Shenandoah

As part of an ongoing series commemorating the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, the National Parks Service is releasing a new video every other week depicting some of the amazing wilderness areas within our National Parks. Professional photographers and videographers are collaborating with NPS to turn these videos into works of art, celebrating our nation's wilderness.

Situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Shenandoah National Park provides over 1 million visitors a year with breathtaking views from its Skyline Drive, and offers campers and hikers the opportunity to share this special wilderness with local deer and songbirds.

In this video released by NPS, professional songwriters Pops Walker and Kipyn Martin describe how the serene Shenandoah atmosphere supplies them with endless inspiration for their songs, as they write among freshwater streams and tranquil hollows. Shenandoah serves as a quiet escape not just for Walker and Martin, but for busy residents of the nation’s capital, located just 75 miles away. As Walker explains, “Life is moving fast out there. But when you come out to the woods, you get freed from that.”
