In the Fall of this year I took another trip south. On the way down to Florida, I stopped at Charleston, and upon returning I stopped, once again, at New River Gorge National River. I hope you enjoy these photos.

The New River

The New River Gorge is about 900 feet deep. The river is among the oldest rivers in the western hemisphere, even older than the mountains it meanders through. Local legend states that only the Nile is older. In any event it slices through 10 million years of rock layers. It also flows north, which is very unusual for the eastern states.

More looks down

Two views of the bridge from near the Visitor Center

We take all this beauty and do this to it WHY?
