Vacation part 3: West Virginia

Wanted to share some photos about my vacation in West Virginia. I wanted to right a whole blog about how empowering it was to vacation alone as a single female and all that jazz BUT what more needs to be said? Blackwater Falls WV is a great place to go if you're a girl who likes hiking and doesn't have a travel buddy. It's a laid back area with a just enough of a hippie-vibe to be enticing.

Seriously it's the type of place I would live if I knew how to drive in the snow. Highly recommended. More pictures to come!!

I do not believe I've ever seen a better reading spot.

Blackwater Falls (no tripod so not greatest photo). I stayed in the lodge at Blackwater Falls State Park which was nice but little outdated.

Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge. <3 everything about it. From the nice little old lady who gave me trail map to the trails.
This is where I fell in love with West Virginia.

Amazing large purple wildflowers in the refuge.

So continues my strange obsession with bridges. Give me a bridge & I will hike to it.

Lindy Point overlook. I want to spend the rest of my life with this view.
Can you marry an overlook?

Me with Lindy Point, the overlook I'm going to pretend is my boyfriend now. Tell me that's not gorgeous?

Although West Virginia was once part of Virginia, it became a state in its own right during the Civil War era. Virginia Vacations
