PEC Calls on U.S. Senators To Stop Mountain Valley Pipeline

On Earth Day, The Piedmont Environmental Council joined 24 groups and 17 members of the General Assembly in a letter to U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner unequivocally outlining the environmental and social justice impacts of the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).

Looking back on fall.

Looking back on fall.

The leaves have fallen and Thanksgiving’s in the rearview mirror, so it seems like as good a time as any to look back on an incredibly beautiful fall here in the northern Piedmont. As PEC’s staff photographer and videographer, I get to travel around to the most beautiful places in our region to make images. Looking back through my catalog from the past few months, there are a few photos that stand out that I want to share with you.

July at the Piedmont Memorial Overlook

The native flower meadow our Piedmont Memorial Overlook property is almost at peak bloom!

This 50-acre property, which has one of the best views in Northern Virginia, is publicly accessible via Sky Meadows State Park. It’s a one-way 1.6-mile hike there via the Ambassador Whitehouse Trail, but many people make it a 4.6-mile loop that includes a stretch of the Appalachian Trail.
