For the past few weeks, like much of the United States, my area has had temperatures hovering between 5 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Everything is frozen, local lakes, ponds, streams and even the rivers.
The weather was just about perfect all weekend while we were out in the woods camping.
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.
