Good morning, my friends. I've been patiently spending approximately the past five years uploading pictures this morning. Some cretins moved into the campground yesterday, and they've been hogging all the bandwidth. And, honestly, would I do that? Well...maybe. We'll just pretend I didn't ask that question, because we all know the answer.
We had a day planned for ourselves yesterday. We had a national park and a state park to explore. We reasoned that we came to West Virginia to see America's newest national park, New River Gorge National Park. Babcock State Park, where we are camped, is just a bonus. We decided to head for the national park first. It turned out to be the first of so many things yesterday. As we drove out of the campground, we spotted this doe and her two fawns. If you look closely, you can see the fawn still has some of his spots. The other one was outside the frame. When photographing animals, one cannot get greedy or one risks missing the shot altogether.
It was about 16 miles to the Canyon Rim Visitor Center, backtracking over the winding road from the day before.
