As we were looking around I saw a sign that pointed you in direction of the overlook. My first thought was of course we need to go to the overlook I have my camera..as we walked down the nice paved path we saw the sign for the overlook and then I saw this...
I hesitated for a moment but continued on up the steps, only stopping a couple of times to "take in the scenery" aka catch my breath. I knew that the short climb would be well worth it, or as I said between breaths it better be worth it. I must tell you the honest truth here.... IT WAS and I would walk it again every day to take in the spectacular view from the overlook at the top of the Pinnacle Rock. I can only imagine what this place will look like in the fall when the leaves are changing colors and WV is showing off its beauty for the rest of the world to see. I know that I will be making the trip back with my camera in the fall.
