The trip is from New River, West Virginia, to Stinking Creek, Tennessee, by way of Long Key, Florida.
Babcock State Park, West Virginia
Finished at the New River Gorge Bridge, we backtracked northeast on Hwy.19, then drove southeast on Hwy. 60, the route we had taken up into the mountains from Charleston. We turned southwest onto Rte. 41 into Babcock State Park. This is a beautiful park high up in the Appalachian Mountains.
There is an old grist mill the park has kept in operation that has been much-photographed, and is one of the most iconic images of West Virginia.
We hiked several short trails.
Along a mountain stream.
High up on a mountainside.
Across a footbridge.
To a mountain lake.
We liked the place so well we spent 3 nights.
