Hiking WV: Blackwater Falls

Since the forecast for the weekend was rain rain rain rain rain, we decided to do our hiking Thursday and Friday.

Our first stop was Blackwater Falls (since its the first place we go past on our way from Morgantown).

It was beautiful. The trees were all rimmed with snow and frost and we had a lovely time wandering around enjoying the scenery.

No ice, but there was a LOT of water going over the main falls.

As well as Elekala Falls.

It took many shots and a lot of contortions to get a decent shot of this ice. But it was fascinating and beautiful.

From Pendleton point, you can see the falls below Elekala falls, which we scrambled down to last summer.
