Late Spring, West Virginia


These images reflect two quick late spring trips to West Virginia, one to the New River Gorge area (my first journey there) and one to old favorite Canaan Valley.  While I was a bit early for the laurel blooms up at Dolly Sods, and the skies were not all that cooperative in either location, both trips were thoroughly enjoyable.  I discovered some new places to explore, got reacquainted with some familiar locations, and look forward to returning soon.
