We are wrapping up the winter season in West Virginia, so I wanted to wrap up the memories that I still needed to write about.
Mike, Emma and I took a walk in the woods to enjoy some fresh air. About 10 minutes after this photo was taken, and a little deeper into the woods we were, the weather changed drastically. It was the craziest thing watching it happen before your eyes. We ran back to the car while having a mixture of heavy rain and sleet drenching us.
Emma and I went to one of our favorite parks. It had just rained so the small river was flowing nicely.
The lake sure didn't look to appetizing though.
This small waterfall is the overflow from the lake so the water level has to be high after a big rain.
I swear this child never looks back to see if I am still there.
This is not the picture that I wanted to put up because 1/3 of us is smiling and only half the bridge is in the photo...but my internet sucks and this is the only one I can get up.
Anyways... the famouse Fayettevill bridge from a view from the bottom of the New River.
We hiked a little in the area but couldn't do the whole thing. Emma had swimming lessons and we were about 1 1/2 hours from home.
There are a total of 800 steps to get to the bottom.
I wish I was able to put up the photos that I had edited. They have much better color and brightness to them.
This was a old coal mine site.
We explored the area a little but but wasn't able to finish the whole thing because of swimming. this one will be done again. I have to see the bottom.
I wanted to get Bolo outside a little so I decided to take the kids to a really easy walk along the Elk River.
It was a beautiful sunny day so it felt so good to be outside.
