New River Gorge in Southern West Virginia

Landscape, Photography

We started the tour of New River Gorge by visiting Glade Creek Grist Mill in Babcock State Park under the heavy rain in late afternoon. But I managed to get a few shots I wanted.


The next morning we stopped by Canyon Rim Visitor Center first to photograph the New River Gorge with splendid foliage colors as the foreground and also was able to get some shots of the New River Bridge under foggy conditions.


We then followed the Fayette Station Road Tour to explore this magnificent Bridge structure looking up and what a beautiful fall colors as we drove on this winding roadway to the River bed.



We did go to the Grandview Overlook but if the misty rain stopped we might be able to take a glance! It turned out we also had to miss the Sandstone Falls because of the weather. Below is what I got of the Falls two years ago:


As we left the New River Gorge area and headed to Lexington, VA via Interstate 64 East, we got quite a surprise foliage scenes in late afternoon. I could not stop taking a number of shots from the moving car.


Our final day of the four day trip will be the driving tour of Blue Ridge Parkway from Buena Vista, VA to the northern entrance of the Parkway and the entire Skyline Drive, so stay tuned for my next posting.
