The family has returned home after a long weekend of camping prior to July 4th. My wife and daughter put our new inflatable stand up paddle board to good use while I spent my time on the water in a kayak. We did some hiking and also got to see some fireworks close up. Quite the nice way to spend a weekend.
The weather was just about perfect all weekend while we were out in the woods camping.
My daughter and I had the day off today so we went out for a hike together. She wanted to bring a camera so I let her use my backup with a small prime lens. We loved being out together and exploring in the woods.
My family and I just have just returned from an extra long weekend at Babcock State Park in West Virginia. The park is beautiful and home to the often photographed Cedar Creek Grist Mill. Trying to get an original image of the mill is nigh impossible at this point, but I took a few that I like, and for me, that is all that matters.
Other places we ventured too included Hawk’s Nest State Park, the New River Gorge Bridge, Cathedral Falls near Gauley Bridge and Plum Orchard Lake. West Virginia is a fantastic state for sight seeing and exploring. It seemed like everywhere we went, the landscaped was so impressive. I easily could have spent so much more time hiking around, but alas, I have to get back to my real job.
