I had a big blog post planned for this evening from my trip to Blackwater Falls State Park and Dolly Sods in West Virginia. However, a sinus infection, a dirty house, and a stack of grading have all conspired to postpone my post for one or more days. In the meantime, here are two teaser images from the trip that will hopefully entice you to watch for that big blog post later this week. Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend.
This first image was taken Saturday evening at Elakala Falls on Shays Run in Blackwater Falls State Park. This is just a gorgeous series of waterfalls to work. I could spend several hours at the first falls (series of four going down Blackwater River Canyon) alone (and I did this particular evening).
The second image is an autumn West Virginia sunrise as seen from the edge of the cliff at Bear Rocks Preserve, a Nature Conservancy property adjacent to Dolly Sods National Scenic Area. Sunday's sunrise was a bit lackluster due to the completely clear skies, but the sun coming up over the misty ridges is always a good show.
