A few weeks back, some dear friends and I gathered along the river for a weekend of Gifts. The cabin we rented was situated beside the New River, and was surrounded by trees. The Japanese Maples were vibrant with color, and the two growing next to each other just outside the cabin door captured in nature the colors of Virginia Tech.
I could not stop taking pictures of the beautiful contrast between the two colors.
People have questioned the Hokie colors, wondering why a school would choose orange and maroon.
Fans of Virginia Tech respond by saying “If God wasn’t a Hokie then why do the leaves turn orange and maroon in the fall”?
