Blackwater Falls State Park

Staying near my soon-to-be-new-home of Buckhannon, Hops and I are spending a few days at Blackwater Falls State Park. (This will also be the site of this winter’s MFA residency. I don’t know that I’ll attend, although I’d like to visit for a few days, so I was kind of scoping it out.) This is a beautiful park, with several falls beyond the eponymous, and some nice viewpoints; it’s well in the mountains and heavily wooded; there are numerous cabins and a lodge and events center (that’s where residency will take place), so plenty to do and see. We’ve done some hiking and some extra sleeping because whew, I am still pooped from my little stint working on campus.
