Most of those were taken in Jackson County.
Every year I go... I come back with hundreds of pictures. Being from ugly, flat Florida... I dont see that kind of stuff. It is really my goal to come up in the fall. I have never seen a true fall.

oh, you have to come in the fall. The leaves are just now starting to change color up on top and it's still green down on the river. You can see the season change as you go up the mountain. It's like time elapse. I live on the old Midland Trail near the New River Gorge Bridge. I believe it is the prettiest spot in the whole state.

I had a friend who moved to that area with her horses and she rode on those trails. She said they were great trails. I always wanted to come ride with her but she retired and moved to NC to live with her daughter. We are going to try to get to the Greenbriar Trail, maybe latter in Oct. It could snow up there by then tho. May have to wait till next year. There are so many places to ride around here we only go further afield for special occasions.

West Virginia has some of the BEST trails. Shoot I don't even have to go on a trail ride to see spectacular views...all I have to do is ride down my driveway and out the road a few miles...this country is amazing.

And being a Florida girl.... I have No Idea what to do.

Normally the weather here doesn't get bad until around the first of the year. I say normally, however last year was the exception. But then it was bad everywhere last winter. I'd play it by ear and watch the weather channel. Let me us know if you should decide to come up.

OMG! I just found this forum last night (too late to post), and I am getting ready to do my intro! And I'm from WV too! YAY! :) lol

I thought no one would know anything about it. I'm located about 80 miles south of Charleston, right on the border with KY. And YES, it is beautiful here, but sadly, I have lived here my WHOLE life and haven't done much trail riding....

Anyway, SO glad to see other West Virginians here. ;) I feel home already.

XOXO, Leah

I sure will. If I bring my horse next summer like I hope to... maybe we can go for a ride.
