BlackWater Falls, WV

landscape, recent posts

Recently, I traveled to Blackwater Falls in the Wild, Wonderful West Virginia. It was very cold the weekend we went. It dropped down into the 40’s at night. During the day it wasn’t as cold and we were able to travel to some scenic overlooks. lindy point
This is Lindy Point a beautiful scenic overlook in the park. It takes a good 15 minute hike on a dirt trail to get here but way worth the trek. The leaves on the trees were starting to bud which gave the fresh green colors.

Here is a long exposure of the falls. It had been raining a few days prior to our visit which caused the massive amounts of water over the falls. blackwater falls

O’ahu Scenic Panorama

pillbox hike panoramaThis photo was taken on top of Kaiwa Ridge Trail also known as the Lanikai Pillbox Hike on the island of O’ahu. When I hiked up here it was above 80 degrees and I didn’t have the right shoes on. Sadly, this is all the further I made it by myself. At least I got this amazing panorama that overlooks the Lanikiai islands and the ridge. It’s intriguing how the colors in the sky change from a haze on the inland side to a vivid blue towards the ocean. I don’t believe I’ve ever been to a more beautiful place yet! Someday I will complete this hike making it to the 2nd bunker.
