Traveling West Virginia...again

We're spending the night and the next few days here. . . at Pipestem State Park in Summers County, WV. We will be coming back home on Thursday.

We walked up to the Look Out Tower, which is the highest elevation in Pipestem State Park.

We climbed up to the top to look at the surrounding view. . .

. . . and the sunset. Isn't it pretty?

But, what's this? What could Charley and I be taking pictures of? Is it a bird, is it a plane, no it's. . .

. . . three baby robins sitting on a large wooden beam in the top of the tower, waiting for their mommy.

Aren't they the cutest things? One is getting impatient to fly away.

I will try to post more pictures of our trip tomorrow.


  1. I love all your pictures. That West Virginia sunset is beautiful. How I long to see one again.

  2. Beautiful sunset!
    The robins are so cute. Looks as if he is trying to get up the courage to take the leap.

  3. I love Pipestem. Shirley and I spent our anniversary there last year. I loved the cable cars down the mountain, although they can be very hot in the July heat. I remember my mouth watering when I looked at all the ripe blackberries just hanging thick on the bushes when we rode up and down the mountain.

    The lodge has very good (albeit expensive) food in the restaurant. Also, the book room at the lodge has a complete set of the Comstock West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia's!

    Hope you have a wonderful trip and make lots of memories.

  4. Pipestem is so cool. I love the tram ride to the bottom of the mountain; one day I am going to eat dinner in that restaurant even if it is expensive. It is so pretty down there. A great place to escape. The views at pipestem are incredible on all directions, aren't they?

    I didn't get to tell stories there this year; I hope I get to go back again sometime, tho.

  5. Beautiful sunset-and cute birds.

  6. I have been in search of such interesting Articles, I am on a holiday its good to see that everyone are trying their best to keep up the Spirit by having such great articles posted.

    Cheers, Keep it up.
