New River Gorge National River: Grandview

Yesterday evening, Noelle and I finally had the chance to spend some time exploring together. We packed up the Civic and headed east into West Virginia. We made it to Ace Adventure Center later than expected due to some road construction, made camp and went to bed. This morning we awoke to beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures. We headed to breakfast at Tudor's Biscuit World, then drove to the Grandview area of New River Gorge to do some hiking. We hiked the interesting Tunnels Trail,

the Canyon Rim Trail,
Fall Grandview
and the Castle Trail,
Castle Trail Cliff
Observe the Cliff!
but were not able to find the Turkey Spur Trail that was marked on my map. It was a great day for a hike. After our time at Grandview, we headed southeast to Sandstone Falls
More Sandstone Falls
where we looked at the falls and did some short hikes. Then it was back to our campsite for a beer, potato salad, and hotdogs.
