WV - Wild and Wonderful

Falls of Elakala, Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia -------

The tent and camping gear is unpacked, with other words we are back from our vacation trip. This year we explored the mountains and woods of West Virginia and Virginia. West Virginia welcomes you with a sign that says, WEST VIRGINIA - Wild and Wonderful, and this is almost an understatement. Our first destination was Blackwater Falls State Park, which is surrounded by Monongahela National Forest. At this time of the year most people go there for fall colors and of course the waterfalls. The photo shows not the most visited waterfall in the park, but I thought it was the prettiest with its swirling pools in the foreground and leaves scattered all over the rocks.
