Hungry for Shenandoah

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Have you seen The Hunger Games movie? Jason and I made it our date night for March and saw it on its opening weekend. That is rare for us, seeing a movie opening weekend, and it has been a long time since I’ve been in that packed of a movie theater.

I read the Hunger Games trilogy of books last year and absolutely loved them. I’ve been re-reading them over the last few weeks in anticipation of the movie. If you haven’t read the books or haven’t seen the first movie, I would highly recommend doing both.

In the lead-up to the movie, I found myself watching the trailer online each day. On top of that, I found the video for one of the songs on the soundtrack, Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift. I actually enjoyed it – and keep in mind that I am not a fan of country music. Even though the song is not upbeat by any means, I found myself fixated by the video. Why? The scenery reminded me of our fall trip to Shenandoah National Park.

Watch the video here:

Have you watched the video? Now, tell me that it doesn’t look like this…

Maybe it’s just me and my memories of our visit, but the video definitely took me back. It reminded me of how much I enjoyed our visit to the park, however short it may have been. It’s definitely a place I would like to return to someday.
