Camping in Lost River, West Virginia

September 29, 2015 in Trips in Eastern United States

Have you ever heard of Lost River, West Virginia?  I’m not going to lie….prior to Labor Day weekend, I hadn’t!  I’m pretty sure most people haven’t.

Labor Day weekend, we camped with my mom in a tiny little campground in a desolate little area of West Virginia called Lost River.  Lost River sits in Hardy County, located in North East, WV just over the Virginia border.  There isn’t much around it.  As a matter of fact, I had zero cell service the entire time.  It is very rare that my cell phone actually says “no service”, especially with Verizon, but that weekend it did.

LOST RIVER, WVThe campground we stayed at, Lost River Campground, was a bit of an oddity.  The scenery was beautiful, but the campground was tiny and sat right next to a road.  The road acted as a dividing line between the tent and RV spots.  This made camping there a little bit sketchy because speed demons would fly down the road, making it a scary experience at times!

Right up the road there was a man-made lake that people were fishing and boating in.  There really was very little to do in the area, but this provided some sort of entertainment for anyone equipped for it.  The campground did have a pool, volleyball net, fire rings, and a surprisingly squeaky clean bath house.  Despite the isolation, Lost River was extremely picturesque and we all had a great time! Take a peek at our photos below….

PIGEON POINT LIGHTHOUSE – PESCADERO, CALIFORNIA

November 18, 2014 in Trips in Western United States

Last week I went on another fabulous trip to California!  The West Coast just never gets old to me.  I wandered around Santa Cruz but also made my way back down to San Luis Obispo for a day as well as San Francisco.

50 miles South of San Francisco in beautiful Pescadero, California, I stumbled upon Pigeon Point lighthouse – one of the tallest lighthouses in the USA.  The scenery was absolutely stunning!  I ended up returning a few days later just to photograph it more.  What I didn’t realize at the time is there are hostels on the premises as well.  If anyone has ever stayed there…I’d love to hear about it!

The views here appear to be straight out of a painting.  If you happen to make it there, be sure to pull over and take in the sights!
