'Almost Heaven' Almost Says It

A trip log taken between
9/25/93 & 10/8/93
To West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest

Chris and I are back from a truly excellent little series of adventures that one calls a vacation. We've seen some of the most beautiful countryside in America, met some wonderful people, and have had a few times that we shall surely never, ever forget.

This trip log was transcribed from the handwritten log I kept, the 4 hours of video we shot and the 35mm stills I took. As a hint of what's inside, during these two weeks we visited some of the following places;

Falling Water (Frank Lloyd Wright designed house)

Dolly Sods Wilderness

Spruce Knob (4863' highest point of WV)

Highland Scenic Highway

Cranberry Glades

Burkes Garden, VA

Pipestem State Park

Brush Creek Falls

Cranberry Backcountry

Redoak Knob (3707')

Seneca Rocks

Harper's Ferry

There are many other places we've been to. Spent some tremendous nights beneath a trillion stars. Been battered by 100 mph winds, sleet and rain all on different nights. Learned how to build a great fire and use only a little wood, and earned an appreciation for our new vehicle the 'Suburban Ranger'.
