GladeCreek-Bridge

At the end of January I decided to take a much needed break from work in Baltimore. I spent three days traveling through the New River Gorge region of West Virginia. I had only driven through this part of the state once, and always wanted to revisit. Knowing there was a good possibility of snow in the forecast, I loaded up the car with plenty of warm clothes, a shovel and
salt (just in case), a map, a 4×5 Cambo film camera and a Nikon digital camera.  I had a couple places in mind that I definitely wanted to visit, and everything else would happen spontaneously.  I must admit, driving through the vast snowy mountains of West Virginia was one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had. Pure white snow covered everything in sight.  I visited Babcock, Little Beaver, and Hawks Nest State Parks where I calmly took in the scenery, as it was really an incredible atmosphere, and a great change from my everyday surroundings.  The calm and quiet setting of West Virginia in the winter was an excellent choice for a short vacation.  I hope to return later in the year, when I can access some areas that were off limits due to the amount of snow on the ground.

Under the NRG Bridge

We stayed in the Marathon Cabin last August for our Honeymoon! We had a wonderful time…..ziplining, hiking, boating/swimming on summersville lake, and relaxing in our beautiful cabin. The new river gorge area is amazing! My husband and I LOVE being outdoors and this area is the perfect place for us! We’d love to come back for a visit as we ran out of time and didn’t get to raft or go horse back riding.
Thank you and thanks for this great contest. We really had a great time, and the cabin was beyond my expectations in cleanliness! We will definitely be back, hopefully through this contest but if not I hope for a bridge day some year!

Horsebacking on the Gorge

This picture describes my favorite part of my husband and I’s anniversary vacation to the Gorge. Not only was this the most beautiful part of our trip, but it was my husband’s first time horseback riding. I grew up around horses, so it was very special to be able to share this moment with him, especially surrounded by such a beautiful setting!
