West Virginia

Monday I headed out to Davis, West Virginia to meet Marie Joabar for a couple days of enjoying and photographing in the mountains. It took a little longer than usual due to a road issue around Myersville which caused an hour delay, then about a half hour away I was the first one to approach a flashing RR crossing sign by a mining plant and had to wait about 40 minutes for a coal car to move through. (He sat there for a while across the street for no apparent reason!)

So five hours later I was much cooler than the city and I was very happy to be there! We arrived uncannily at the same time in the parking lot of The Bright Morning Inn. Susan the owner had our keys waiting when we arrived, and it was good to check in. She is delightful and always has great tips on places to go. She also has great breakfasts. After checking in Marie and I headed to Linde Point, in Blackwater Falls State Park to see what would happen there at sunset. We stayed until dark and hiked out and headed back to the inn. On the way back we decided to get up at 3:30 and head to Dolly Sods, in the Monongahela Wilderness for sunrise the next morning. So I got about 4 hours of sleep before getting up.....
These are a few images made the evening sunset and morning sunrise....after the sunrise we headed back to Davis for a hearty breakfast.....and plan the rest of the day.........more to follow later....
