Yesterday we drove through West Virginia and stopped for some photos. It makes my #35 US State on this blog. One more under the belt.
I have been to West Virginia many times, mostly for white water rafting, but not in the last couple years as I have started taking photos for this blog.
This is route 19 crossing the New River Gorge. River is way below down there, can’t actually see from this spot at all. You can see it from another observation deck, but it is way down and with tiny little white rafting boats that it is really would not look good on the photo, so I did not bather taking those at all.
South east part of Washington state is popular with photographers for its unique and beautiful landscapes. Seems like endless rolling hills are planted with different types of crops and produce very nice patterns of different colors.
We were there last year for a quick overnight trip. For sunrise and sunset we went to the Steptoe State park and enjoyed beautiful views from the high above. During the day we drove around and looked for some other interesting photo opportunities, like this one.
We did a day trip to this place for some hiking and during this day had nice sunshine, a bit of rain and some nice snow showers. We listened to some folks talking about their super earthy and green yoga studio, where they all exchange only positive energy between themselves and surrounding energy sources, which of course heal their souls and bodies. We ate Thai food with some new age twist on its ingredients which I would probably not repeat again and look for another place to it, as I prefer more mainstream version of Thai cuisine.
I’m sure many of you know exactly where it is, don’t you?
Weekend update: We have couple virtual winners this time around, Cathy Ulrich and kazg10 suggested it to be near Sedona Arizona. This is a few miles west of it, taken from the Red Rock State Park, from one of the hikes around the park.
I wish I had my little fitbit thingy when I was in Paris, because I walked and walked, have no idea how many miles I put around there in a few days. By the end of the day my feet were killing me and I had to change different shoes from preventing getting blisters, as the shoes I had were not the most comfortable walking shoes for 8-10 hours day, too late to discover.
