Roanoke Virginia Postcard

January 8th, 2011 (01:32 pm)

Here is a postcard I sent to a Postcrosser in the Netherlands a couple months ago. Unfortunately, it never arrived. I'll post it here so that she can see it, and to show everyone one of my favorite views of the city where I went to high school, Roanoke, Virginia. This is in the mountains of southwestern Virginia. The star you see overlooking the city is a nearly 90-foot high structure on the top of Mill Mountain. At night it glows with neon, either sparkling white or in colors. Often it's red, white, and blue. Yes, I know it sounds tacky, but it's really quite pretty.

Re: Beautiful Photo

As you can see, this is a postcard. I didn't take the photo, so I don't have the right to let you. You'd have to get permission from whoever holds the copyright. Find a place to buy postcards in Roanoke, get a copy of the postcard, and you can probably figure out who that is. I sent this one, so I no longer have it, or I'd be happy to look at the back and tell you.
