Beautiful West Virginia

About a month ago, Bob and I had our first visit to West Virginia.  Like everyone else, we were ready for the "Country Roads", and wondered if its beauty had been over-stated.  Well, to our eyes, it was all that beautiful and more!  Magical really.  We were there for a weekend to support a new endeavor in Lewisburg that is bringing new life to the community, and we had a wonderful time making some fantastic new friends!

We stayed in a log cabin WAY out in the middle of what seemed like nowhere. Built in the 1800s.  Forty-five minutes from town.  Nothing can quite describe the quiet, and the fireflies and the full moon.  Overwhelming.

And so much history too!  Visited the Organ Cave which not only has amazing stalagmites and stalactites, but was part of a secret mining operation in the Civil War for the Confederate States' gunpowder.  Lots of the mining equipment is still in its original place.

The warm air meeting us coming out of the cavern immediately fogged the camera, adding a special something to how beautiful it was.

The rolling hills fold one over the other as far as the eye can see.  Can't wait to go back again!

And the WhiteWater Rafting is the best!!  That's me, oar poised to dig.  Photo © Class IV Adventures

Thanks to Doug and Laura for a wonderful weekend!
