Traveling West Virginia - Hawks Nest State Park & New River Gorge Bridge

We stopped at Hawks Nest State Park, which is situated along the winding, mountainous road of Rt. 60. A lot of this park was built by CCC workers. There is a golf course, a tramway to the river below, a lodge and many other activities here. The only place we ever visit is the lookout, the gift shop and this neat building. . .

Wouldn't you just love to have an out house that looked like this? 

I am at the outlook pointing to the view below.

Here is another view.

We also drove over the New River Gorge Bridge.

Here is one of the views from the boardwalk going down the side of the hill. It looks very similar to the view from the lookout at Hawk's Nest.

Trees jutted out from the rocky cliffs

The bright sun prevented me from getting very many good pictures. However, here is one I got of the majestic bridge from the boardwalk.

I love this bridge. It is so beautiful! And the view is gorgeous!

I am sure many of you have been to Hawk's Nest State Park and the New River Gorge Bridge before, but if you haven't, I hope you enjoyed my pictures. And, I hope you get to visit there some day.

Tomorrow I will show you a picture of something that I have never taken a picture of before.
