Designer, Nicola Slaney, introduced her family to a real-life adventure when she took them on an exploration holiday of spectacular dimensions to the Blue Ridge mountains in the U.S. state of Virginia. From there the intrepid mother, her three daughters and husband set out to explore the Blue Mountain Ridgeway and the Shenandoah National Park.
Although relatively new as a National Park, the Shenandoah Valley (translated from the original Native American language it means ‘beautiful daughter of the stars’) has been occupied by humans for more than ten thousand years.
Shenandoah is fed by a multitude of sparkling streams with names such as Brokenheart Run, Mossy Creek and Red Bud Run, all of which are alive with fish. The most well-known is the Shenandoah Brook Trout. This lively fish has blue scales tinged with silver and has the distinction of being the National Fish of Virginia. Nicola has placed her Brook Trout at the peak of a conspicuous leap from the chilly spring waters of Red Bud Run. Tiny hepatica flower along the edge of the stream, and if you look carefully you will discover this tranquil scene is surveyed from the edge of the trees by a solitary, silhouetted stag. The sheer beauty of the landscape means that Shenandoah is destined to live forever in our hearts.
