Today is International Mountain Day–which calls for a few highlights of the beautiful mountains in and around our beloved Harrisonburg! We are truly blessed to live surrounded by mountains in the Shenandoah Valley.

To start things off, here’s a breathtaking sunrise time-lapse of Wilson and main campus. You can see the blue mountains paint the background as the sky changes color.
