I took these pictures of green hills somewhere along US-11 close to Natural Bridge. I've seen cows grazing on meadows and single both new and more picturesque old houses. I found this landscape of relatively low, rolling hills typical for agricultural region of Virginia's Piedmont.

I know the word Piedmont (Piemonte) from Italy, whose meaning is to the feet of the mountains because of its characteristic geographical position, a plain surrounded by the Alps.

In the USA Piedmont is the plateau region of the eastern United States which lies between the Atlantic Coastal Plain, from which it is divided by the fall line, and the eastern mountain ranges, the Appalachian Mountains (Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia).
