After 4 hours in the Jeep 3 detours and actually getting lost twice I finally made my way to Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia! I only had a few hours so I decided to focus on Elakala falls which is a short walk from the main lodge. It had rained pretty badly and getting down to the falls was pretty tracherous and slippery. It took me quite a while to scramble/ slide down the hill to get to the base of the falls the soft mosses were in full bloom making traction an after thought. It was pretty lonely and I had the place mostly to myself so I dove right in up to my knees and started crawling all over the place looking for the best photo's! I am fairly pleased with my results!
