West Virginia

West Virginia is another one of those totally underrated States ( like Arkansas) that is a truly beautiful vacation destination nobody thinks of. We had a wonderful time visiting this State for about a week in July this year. I would have loved to spend more time there!! I like nature, and West Virginia has lots of it. If you want to get away from it all, not spend a lot of money and not have to go too far from most places in the Eastern U.S., this is the place to go.

You can go whitewater rafting in the New River, but it looked a little too scary to me ( a beginner that has only done this once). Maybe next time.....

The kids really wanted to do it, but I chickened out:)

Seneca Rocks

West Virginia has a lot of mountains and some real awesome rocks to climb on. Seneca Rocks is one of the areas you can do this, but we ran out of time. I guess we really need to make at least one more trip to West Virginia!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful nature , nice people, peacefull and quiet
  • Cons:Isolated and bad mountain roads
  • In a nutshell:Great State for visiting!

    Hi, I visited again your pages and found this beauty. I read about your scary to drive on bridges, I feels those on the opposite way (prob because I born with a bridge on my eyes :) This main picture is very cool, and the picture where is the bridge and you/daughter is perfectly scoped and exposed! Nice work!
