Autumn in West Virginia

Autumn is the beautiful time to visit West Virginia. From Frederick Maryland we took I-70 then I-68 and picked up I-77 near Morgantown in West Virginia to our destination in southern part of the State, the New River Gorge area. At the first rest stop, the Sideling Hill on I-68 in western Maryland we came across so incredible sight of morning fog covering layers of hills.

The New River Gorge Bridge is a steel arch bridge 3,030 feet (924 m) long over the New River Gorge. With an arch 1,700 feet (518 m) long, the New River Gorge Bridge was for many years the world’s longest single-span arch bridge, it is now the fourth longest.

We made this trip four years ago but the fond memory is still so fresh!

    Great photos, Stephen, they bring back the fond memories of our trip to see the Bridge Day festivity, Oct 14-15, 2016. If interested, below is a link of a video. Just shared your snow geese photos with friends, we hope to make it this coming January/February. Cheers!

      Thank you, Biing. We were there on the Bridge Day but did not stop for too long. I enjoyed your video, nicely done as always.
