    A few things I saw while my wife and I were biking last week. NEX-6 + MD 50/1.4.

    Very nice Tony. This is the kind of stuff I miss about living here in the "wide open spaces"- not many surprises. Palouse Falls being a rare exception. Though I am getting to places of interest because of my job, I unfortunately don't have the time to stop and explore. Or at least I haven't figured it out yet. ;)

    Thanks guys. WV is really lovely when you get out away from the congestion. Even a state as small as ours has urban sprawl issues, just on a smaller scale. Lots to see out in the farmlands and hills. Jim, I hope you do get a chance to capture some of the sites you encounter.

    West Virginia is beautiful. One of my favorite hikes was in the Dolly Sods.
    I'd love to make it back out to New River Gorge sometime and get some kayaking shots in my inventory.

    Tony, have you ever had a chance to make it out to to Bridge Day? I always wanted to go when I lived in Ohio, but could never get my schedule to work.

    Dolly Sods and the NRG are both stunning. The Bluestone canyon is another really nice place. Pipestem SP has a lot of trails. I've done the trail around the lake a couple of times. They also have a long one of about 8 miles that descends from the lodge down into the bottom of the canyon, follows the Bluestone River, and climbs back out. I'd love to do that one, and the photo opportunities would be incredible - as would the fishing.

    As for Bridge Day, I've watched it on TV, but never attended myself. I have a dislike for being around large numbers of people, and B.D. usually draws 100,000+.
