Falls of Hills Creek, West Virginia

Us at Middle Falls of Hills Creek -6/25/14  (45 feet high)
You know that we can NEVER go on a trip without checking out some waterfalls...  This time we visited the  Falls of Hills Creek in the Monongahela National Forest area of West Virginia (on 6/25/14).   Hope you enjoy the photos today.  Be sure to click on them for enlargements.


Beautiful Trail to visit the waterfalls

Me on one of the series of steps down to the waterfalls
Like the steps I showed you in my blog post from Grandview,  someone VERY SMART and CREATIVE has done a fantastic job of  building these steps and platforms... I read that there were about 400 steps down,  which means that there were 400 steps BACK UP (Pant Pant).... ha

But the area was so beautiful all around us... I would recommend these waterfalls to ALL of you---and even though there were alot of steps,  there were places to stop and rest if needed along the way... It was a VERY nice area/trail....


Are you hearing her saying to him:  "Wait for me"...... OR is he saying to her:  "Wait for me... You are moving too fast!!"   Hmmmmmm---I wonder!!!!! ha ha



Who is that peaking over the edge???
Once we got down to Middle Falls,  we had to go down a series of METAL steps in order to get to the bottom platform..


Middle Falls (45 feet);  This is my 'attempt' to take a  fancy photo like my hubby does.  His are MUCH better --but this one is okay I guess.



George heading down to the bottom platform at Lower Falls
When we got down to the area where we could see Lower Falls,  guess what we found????  YES---it was another set of steps DOWN......


See her --way up there?  She is asking George:  "Can we take the elevator back up?"  ha ha
See what a fantastic job they did of building all of these steps and platforms.  Wow---we were impressed.


Lower Falls of Hills Creek,  63 feet



My Hero doing his 'thing'--taking lots of fantastic photos
