New River Gorge National Park

I visited my first National Park in August and I realized I need to get to more of them. I’ll be road tripping this weekend to Charlotte and as we pass through West Virginia, we’ll make a stop to New River Gorge National Park.
The NP is well known for the New River Gorge Bridge (seen below).
Seeing as it is so late in October, I’m hoping that the foliage is displaying beautiful color


There are also some great hikes to waterfalls and what I’m sure are sweeping vistas. We only have a few hours to take in all we can (twss) at the park, so I, being the nerdy over planner I am, am making notes on the spots in the park that would be clutch to visit.

Have you ever visited this park?
What National Parks have you been to that you love?

Seems so far away but I’m pretty sure those 81 days are going to jet past, especially since Thanksgiving is only 50 days away. The entire holiday season is so […]
