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!
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.
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.
