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.
