Cathedral State Park nov_or_dec2009|
Just outside of Aurora, West Virginia, is a small (100-and-some acres) virgin hemlock forest. Right along US Route 50, I stopped one day during an extended trip back home. I picked a good day with a surprise fresh snowfall. No other people, no footprints. The occasional sound of a vehicle on Route 50 and a distant deer were my only companions besides the snow and the trees. A beautiful experience.
