With the weather warming up WV is starting to bloom and come back to life. We could not let a day as beautiful as today pass by without getting out in the Wild and Wonderful that can be found in Mercer County. Even the bees were buzzing with excitement!
Rosa, Susan and I enjoyed driving around with the top down on the VW bug and visiting Pipestem State Park for a picnic lunch and walking the trails to look for a geocache. Our attempt at geocaching today was plagued with technology difficulties but that did not stop the fun. After our visit at Pipestem we headed to a place that I had never been. Brush Creek Falls. The trail was well maintained and I was grateful to see that there was not a large amount of litter. The walk to the first set of falls is one that would be safe for kids of all ages they just have to watch the ground to adjust for the rocks and roots you will find on any nature trail. We did not venture on out to the second falls today but will make a return trip to finish the trail.
This is a must stop for anyone.
We wrapped up our trip and day in the sun with a quick stop at Berkshire's Old Fashioned Frozen Custard for a delicious cold treat!
