More West Virginia


Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!


I wanted to share some more from our road trip May 2018 taken in West Virginia, New River Gorge and the Babcock State Park and the Glade Creek Grist Mill. These are all beautiful places to visit, I highly recommend a visit.  

The Grandview at the New River Gorge.



The forest and mountains are a lovely sight. This is a spot for a birding festival in the spring. Lots of Warblers migrating through this area. 


This is a beautiful of the New River Gorge. 



I zoomed in on this train from the Grandview overlook. Looks like a lot of coal loaded on those train cars. 



Glade Creek Grist Mill is fairly new built in 1976. It is a re-creation of the mill known as Cooper's Mill. The mill provides for purchase homemade cornmeal to visitors depending on availability. 



A pretty view of the creek!




Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

If Trump has his way in West Virginia that will become a strip mine. How the hell you ever elected him is a mystery to the rest of the world.

You captured the grandeur of this area wonderfully. It's along the route to our daughter's home in Tenessee.
Did you Bungee jump from the bridge while you were there ;) Happy Day.

The mill is picture perfect. I actually thought it was a painting at first. What a lovely part of the world … and from afar, the forested area is magnificent in its greenness!
