Springtime Snapshots: The Canaan Valley Region in Late Spring
By John Sherwood, DCSki Columnist
June 25, 2008

Editor’s Note: DCSki Columnist John Sherwood recently made a trip to the Canaan Valley region of West Virginia, where he visited Dolly Sods, Roaring Plains (South Prong Trail), and the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

“The Rhododendrons were in full glory and the birds were also great - I was close to 40 species on my recent trip including Scarlet Tanagers and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, the bird in the vanity West Virginia license plate,” writes John.

John provided the following late spring photos from his trip.

Love the top shot. I call that stuff Mountain Laurel. It’s really neat when you come upon a mountainside of it in full bloom.

I recently wrote an article about a Dude Ranch near Gore. Stay tuned.
Come visit the Lake! Yours, Connie Lawn
