Last weekend we drove to West Virginia for a nature fix — our term for some rest and relaxation in the wilds.  First we tried the east entrance to Dolly Sods (closed), then the south entrance to Dolly Sods (closed), then the front entrance to Seneca Rocks (closed), the Seneca Rocks visitor center (closed), local national forest campground (closed), and finally the entrance to Spruce Knob, the highest point in the state.

It was open.  Yay!

Not only was it open, but everything was accessible and there was snow on the ground.  Not much snow — mind you — but enough for us to enjoy it.  Plenty of wind, dramatic clouds, winter foliage, and no crowds.  Just the way we like it!

Based on earlier observations, the distance that can be seen in these images is somewhere between 35 to 50 miles… nothing like the distances that can be seen out in the western Rockies, but plenty for this region.

      Oh boy. Since you ask, I’ll have to put together a post about them.

      Suffice to say, they are living up to the Maine Coon reputation of being kittens for up to five years, only in BIG kitty bodies. Quite the handful at times.

      Cindy says we’re both infected with the cat love parasite, as we’re completely charmed by them and their ways… 😉
