Elkins is nestled in the Appalachian mountains in the heart of West Virginia. It's a quaint town in the heart of logging and coal mining country. Through and around town are miles and miles of curvy mountain roads so it's no surprise how many residents own motorcycles.

Since I'm usually too busy keeping the bike on the road, I don't have too many pictures of West Virginia except for a few shots of the Shavers Fork River in the Monongahela Forest, as well as this photo taken near Blackwater Falls, below.

Shavers Fork River

Most of these visuals are the Shavers Fork River adjacent to Stuart Recreation Area in the Monongahela Forest. I go hiking here often with Anita because it's very beautiful and the well-maintained park has large grassy fields and lots of trees. Yah it's pretty sweet.

These photographs were taken along the trail that leads into the park from the main road. It's a sneaky way to get into the park without paying. Of course, I've already paid the $3 to drive into the park many times so I don't feel guilty about hiking in a different (perfectly legal) way. Ha!

Nearby is Otter Creek Wilderness area — another good hiking/biking area, but I got no pictures of it because I always forget my camera!

However, we did capture our hike up distinct Seneca Rocks amidst the verdant Appalachian Mountains.

A couple of warning signs spelled out a release of liability for trespassers on this sketchy bridge. Despite the condition of the planks, the structure of the bridghe is quite solid.
