We here at Appalachia Bare hope the holiday season brought everyone warmth and togetherness. We wish all our readers, subscribers, and submitters a healthy, happy, safe New Year.
Appalachia Bare will take a brief hiatus and will return January 18, 2022. We’ll use this time to perform a little website maintenance and to strategize for new content. Our goal is to (hopefully) bring better reading and viewing experiences.
In the meantime, feel free to peruse our site’s articles/ galleries (numbering 235). To begin your exploration, we’re listing our staff’s top five pieces below:
