Early Morning at Bucklick Branch - West Virginia

Good Friday Morning!

Rain, Rain Go...  Well, I'll be honest, I'm tired of the rain, and generally prefer sunny days and puffy clouds, but if we're going to get 10 straight days of rain (no, really), we'll make the best of it. 

So, with that said, I hope folks have enjoyed the wave of river-waterfall-cascade images, as that's been the show for the last couple of weeks, but we'll start to change it up next week.  

I've been hugely enjoying exploring the Gauley Canyon NRA over the last few years, a place close to where I grew up, but that was somewhat off-limits due to private ownership when I was young.  I've also had some very interesting conversations with folks that live near the NRA, and what local attitudes and opportunities are relative to the public land and the rules and influence of the National Park Service.  I'll have more to say about that topic in a future post (because we have more images from the Canyon). 

Today's image of Bucklick Branch, a tributary in the heart of the canyon.  I was really excited about this one, as this one had evaded us earlier in the year, and after getting there I would recommend a high clearance vehicle and a good pair of water shoes - this one is not the easiest waterfall to get to or to find.

Hope folks have a nice weekend.
