What a view!

My wife and I had heard of Blackwater Falls State Park near Davis, West Virginia. But we had never been there. When our neighbors told us that the leaves were at peak color, we did a day trip to check it out. We weren’t disappointed.

It had rained the previous day, so some of the trees had dropped a few leaves. Still, the Blackwater River valley was gorgeous from every angle. This was the view from our lunch table outside the lodge. The scalloped designs and curves of the pair of love seats and the end table in front of us created an intriguing foreground for the lovely leaves beyond.

“What a view!” is my Photo of the Week.

They both taught me to cherish the people I am with. I try and fail and try again.

  1. Beautiful! I visited Black water Falls one winter right after a record setting snowfall. It is still one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen. This fall photo is gorgeous!! I think I will have to visit again!

  2. My first attempt at commenting on your post has not appeared, so I’ll tell you again: we love your posts, especially this last one of Blackwater Falls. It’s one of our favorite places to go on a day trip out of the Burg or for longer stays. Our favorite event there was getting snowed-in on Ken’s b’day in 2012! We were kept there by the snow for three nights !
