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!

“Children cannot bounce off the walls if we take away the walls." - Erin Kenny

The Guadineer Scenic Area was my absolute favorite part of our West Virginia trip. The short .5 mile trail winds you through thousands of red spruce trees and is completely silent and still. When we arrived there was significant cloud cover through these trees which added an element of beauty and mystery.

My girls made a see-saw with two limbs they found, and played among the moss and mushrooms for hours. West Virginia puts you at one with nature, and is a breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively!).

I think nature is the greatest classroom and playground. Do you agree?

Gin is back! Stop by for a taste of our newest batch. Pictured here is the gin basket packed full of local herbs and conifers. Our gin is vapor infused in the still column to preserve floral notes. We will be sharing more gin pics and info on our gin making soon! #stillhollow #stillhollowspirits #smallbatch #craftspirits #gin #bourbon #whiskey #moonshine #rye #singlebarrel #appalachia #randolphwv #gettuckered #cornwhiskey ...

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!

Elated laughs, cheerful whoops, and giddy squeals are the normal sounds you will hear at Blackwater Falls State Park Sled Run. A mere 40 miles away from #ElkinsWV, and in the heart of #WVSkiCountry, this winter attraction is the longest, fastest sled run on the East Coast. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Mill Creek Falls in Kumbrabow State Forest from fall of last year. I’ve been impatiently waiting for the leaves to turn this year. It’s a struggle.

So yesterday it was winter, today it’s fall. To quote Monty Python, “winter gave spring and summer a miss and went straight into autumn.” If I’m going to be posting out of season I might as well post my favorite from last fall. This is a shot of one of the roads that goes through Kumbrabow State Forest. I don’t know how we did it because it wasn’t planned, but we went there at the perfect time last year.
