Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia




These are the views we had while kayaking at "Hungry Mother State Park", Marion, Virginia. We were there Sept 2016, so the light was going into the later evening, it was breezing cold ...not the easiest kayaking experience ... if we would have had more water, we might have had the ability to row from our campsite ... but the waters were way low ... so we had to sneak in at a higher water location ... the waters were / maybe I should say the winds were pushing against us, so we didn't go to far from our camping spot.

You may ask why the name here is what I got when googling it "Hungry Mother State Park in Virginia is named after Hungry Mother Creek. The creek was supposedly listed on a 1774 land survey as "Hungers Mother" creek. The Name "Hungry Mother" was not officially attached to it until 1929." I was not sure, so that is why I decided I better look it up to see, I was curious too.


Here is a short vlog from that evening. Enjoy!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. See you again real soon. Be Well Be Blessed. Beth ( :

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.
