blueberry land

Two weeks ago, my husband and I and another couple took several hikes in the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area of West Virginia. I am not fond of West Virginia - the mountains seem too looming and make me feel closed in, unless, of course, I'm on top of them :-). This plateau area is open and high, so it is a place I like to visit. The view here is coming up a trail from some bog-type areas near a river, through some blueberry fields, soon to arrive at a cluster of very large rocks that look over a valley. The wind is always blowing up there and if you go on a day in early October, let me warn you to take thick parkas and gloves and hats. This is tundra landscape and atmosphere!
