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!

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.

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!
