|Blackwater Falls, West Virginia|
Believe it or not, we did manage to see about 25 new waterfalls. Some were 'waterless' --or almost waterless... Others were huge... Today I'll share one of our favorites, Blackwater Falls, in the Potomac Highlands near Davis, West VA. Thanks to blog friend, ANGELA, for promoting her gorgeous state on her blog... That's one reason we went there!!!!
We got to the state park on a rainy, wet, foggy day ---which is usually a good time to view waterfalls... WELL--we definitely hit the jackpot. It was still drizzling when we hiked down to the waterfall --but once we got there and saw that raging beauty, we just forgot about all of the rain!!!! Blackwater Falls (50 feet high) is on the Blackwater River. The hike wasn't bad ---and there is a great boardwalk with steps leading down to the falls.
Today I will share with you some of our photos around the state park. Above is a photo taken near the falls, from the boardwalk. Below are more! Be sure and click on each picture to see a larger version.
There are more waterfalls in this 2,456 acre state park. We saw a few more here on this trip--but want to go back there in order to do more hiking on their many trails and to check out more waterfalls in the area. This is a state park which we definitely recommend.
Hope all of you have had a great 2+ weeks. I have not checked many blogs --so if I missed something really important, please remind me to check that particular post. Otherwise, I will start reading your blog posts this week.
I also enjoyed participating on Facebook while I've been gone. IF you are on Facebook and haven't found me yet, please go to my sidebar and click on my Facebook info. I never thought I would enjoy Facebook --but my kids/grands are all on it. SO-- IF I wanted to keep up with them and their busy lives, I 'had' to join!!!!! What I found out though was just how much fun Facebook is. I have also caught up with many blog friends --some of which are not blogging anymore.
Hugs to All,
