This weekend we took a little camping trip to Cabwaylingo State Forest, here in West Virginia. A lot of the trails are overrun but we bushwacked through an old trail and found an amazing spot for exploring. The pictures don't do it justice, and we had a great time.

The loggers have been busy up on the mountain. We took the kids up to the vine swing for what may be their last swing. We have tried to explain to them that most likely it will get knocked down by the loggers so we let them swing to their hearts content tonight!

Blackwater Falls

We took our first trip up to Blackwater Falls this weekend. We checked out the falls and camped overnight. We hiked to Elakala Falls, Balanced Rock, Lindy Point, and a couple other overlooks. Our favorite however, was a little hike to Pendelton Falls, which doesn't really show well on the trail map but was worth the trouble to locate it. A great secluded spot, with a few good swimming holes for the kids for a warmer weekend maybe.

Today the kids and I tried our hand at butter. We used goat cream we separated with our new separator. It came out alright and I think we will make it again.
