Blackwater Falls

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy and I celebrated by birthday earlier this year before the pandemic and the lockdowns came along and closed everything down. We went to Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia for a short getaway with the possibility of getting in some hiking.

Blackwater Falls is a pretty waterfall that gets its name from the amber tint of the water going over the falls. The tint comes from the tannic acid of fallen hemlock and red spruce needles.

This picture was taken at an overlook across the river from the main Blackwater Falls overlook near the base of the falls.

    Great picture of Blackwater Falls. That was such a fun trip —just before Covid hit….. Personally, I loved seeing all of the pretty little snow almost as much as the waterfall… ha

    That is gorgeous. I would give Betsy all our snow as a gift…just say’n. 🙂

    Beautiful and wild picture! Upon enlarging it, I do see that the water is not really clear.

    Lovely capture despite the color of the waterfall. Nature is beautiful whatever its color was!
