“New River Gorge, located in gorgeous rural West Virginia, is the site of the oldest river system in the world.
At the heart of the New River Gorge is world’s third longest single span arch bridge, as well as the third tallest bridge on the United States at 876 feet above river level. Every year, around mid-October, this moody stretch of the river becomes the site of one of the most impressive displays of Fall foliage colors, and that transition of seasons has become one of the biggest tourist draws on the East coast.
This video, which premiered on BBC Earth, was filmed as part of SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM, an ongoing crowdfunded quest to explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollution in contrast with some of the most incredible Dark Sky Preserves in North America.”
