A photo rarely does the scenery around here justice, but safe to say it’s not an ugly drive! Briarpatch Mountain and Job Mountain standing tall over Harman in their fall glory.

Before my daughter and I said our goodbyes and parted ways, we stopped for coffee in the mountain town of Elkins, West Virginia.
.
This lovely coffee drink is called the Headless Horseman and was, of course, my daughter’s pick. She loved it!
.
If in the area, stop by and try one of their crazy flavors!

This bird of prey is typically found along coasts and large rivers. Ospreys need large, permanent bodies of clean water with abundant fish populations and in #RandolphWV we have plenty of those.

Swing on by the ‘holler today 11-6 to try our mountain gin & cranberry corn whiskey, then delve into our aged products- maple syrup barrel aged whiskey & our 16 month barrel aged bourbon.
Then head on over to cider fest at swilleddog #wvciderfest .
That combo would make for a great Saturday!

Spread some positivity this week, "You will find poetry nowhere, unless you bring some with you." See the light and be encouraging.
.
Although the Hutte in #HelvetiaWV is temporarily closed, you can still take a drive through the mountains and hike the 2.5 mile Helvetia Historic Trail. Plus, it's such a beautiful time of year to get outside!

The golden leaves glistening in the morning sunlight. With this week’s weather, from rain to wind, the foliage is starting to disappear and blanket the ground.
