Canaan Valley — Finally Back in the Forest

It’s been a rough couple of years, and I’ve been crap at posting anything besides book roundups, but I’m going to try for a little more variety–no promises, because I’m still struggling, but I’m going to try.

We spent a long weekend at Canaan Valley (the first time we’d been hiking since November, which is a really long time for me) and although the weather was meh for part of the weekend, it was wonderful to be back in the woods.

By meh, I mean Saturday was either rain or this:

Fog in Davis

(Guess what Michael did.)

But we did hike, and of course we our first walk was along the Blackwater River Trail. It’s my favorite.




The beaver dam is starting to fall apart; not sure if the beavers have moved or it was just the ice melting. We’ll see in the coming months.


Since the ground was frozen Sunday morning, we decided to try to Abe Run and Mill Run trails.


Why that caveat?

Those trails are wet.


There are several boardwalks throughout that system.


Luckily the water was mostly frozen (or avoidable) so we get to enjoy this view.


And of course I sat by a creek for a bit.
