Exploring West Virginia

This was our first outing to explore some of the "touristy" places that West Virginia has to offer. 
The first stop was Kanawha Falls 

Cathedral Falls  

 Beautiful 60+ foot drop 
I cant wait to see this during the wet season. 

Next stop was a major tourist attraction.
The Mystery Hole
 This place has been open since 1973. It advertises itself as "a gravity-defying wonder".

The walls are built at different angles so you walk into different rooms and feel that you are sideways.  Personally I couldn't wait to get out of there. I felt like I was starting to get dizzy.
They also don't allow cameras inside. :( 
Our last stop was the famous New River Gorge Bridge. 
It used to be the worlds longest steel arch bridge...but now its the 4th. 

 White water rafting is popular on the river. 

It was a nice day exploring our new state. It definitely is different but beautiful. 


  1. I've never been to West Virginia but wow what a beautiful place.

  2. Looks like a wonderful place to visit. Great pictures!

  3. It is beautiful. Won't those trees be gorgeous when they start to turn colors? I couldn't imagine crossing that bridge. Yikes!

  4. Looks like a gorgeous place. I've never been there, it's on my list though... my goal is to hit all 50 states someday :). and might I say, I'm jealous you don't still have some of that baby weight. I can't get the last 20 lbs to drop and it soooooo still shows :(. I'm jealous.

  5. I absolutely love WV, its so beautiful. There are so many fun things to do at The New River Gorge, you'll def. have to check it out sometime.
