Black Water Falls

We went for  a road trip  last weekend.  We have been wanting  to explore some of the beautiful places here in West Virginia and we got to see some of it last Sunday.  Our first stop was the Black Water Falls State Park located in Davis, West Virginia.  It was very unfortunate that  the rain was pouring hard when we are approaching the State Park.  Nevertheless, it did not stop us from seeing the beauty of the falls.  Below are some photos.
Luckily, we had one umbrella  from our vehicle.  I feel bad for this lady who  works there as she was trying to entertain the  guests even if it was raining.  We stopped by and  we let the kids  guessed what kind of  scat/poop of animals they see on the  table.  
Me and hubby  were  laughing because we thought of adding one more W to Wild and Wonderful West Virginia and  that is Wet!

We decided not to go to the Salt Sands as the kids were getting so wet.
A good Samaritan offered to take us a family photo.  We returned the favor and took  a photo of them as well.

Our road trip did not end there.  Tune in for some more next time.  

Blackwater Falls
Here is some facts about Black Water Falls taken from their website (the last photo was also from their website).  See how pretty it is when it's not raining?

Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the falls of the Blackwater River whose amber-colored waters plunge five stories then twist and tumble through an eight-mile long gorge.

The "black" water is a result of tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The falls are one of the most photographed sites in West Virginia.
