Virginia Outwards is a collection of micro-documentaries focusing on all that the Commonwealth of Virginia has to offer.

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Into the Back Bay
The variety of jaw dropping sights at the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge is something to behold. Caught between the thunderous ocean waves and the timid tranquility of the marshy ponds there exists a world inhabited by thousands and thousands of migrating birds that will astonish and fascinate even the most seasoned birdwatcher.
Teeming with life, the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a place to observe a huge amount of species while still being able to bask in the near silence of the wind.
Shenandoah National Park
Traces of the Mountain Past
3000 feet up in the Virginia Highlands, the Upper Pocosin Mission Ruins are testament to the existence of a strong knit community of people that lived deep in the Shenandoah National Park from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. It is part of an extensive network of abandoned houses, cemeteries, and walls that represent a once thriving economy rich with history.
