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!

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. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

There’s just something beautiful about the cold. #WVSkiCountry got lots of snow this week for some great cross country and downhill skiing, and some amazing scenery.

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!
