We could not get Watoga S.P on the phone to make a reservation so we decided to hit the road early and take the advantage of “first come first served” sites (It is good Idea to put aside sites that can not be reserved).
We drove the scenic HWY 39/55 from Summersville to Mill Point ,it took us two and a half hours to get there because the road is curvy and some times steep –but what a treat.
Surly we got a nice spot close to the creek with electrical hook ups,the sites are large and spacy,they also did a good job cutting the trees ,so we were in the shade but no branches were “sitting” on our trailer.
Afternoon we did some traveling around the park and drove to the closest library for the WiFi, on the way back Mama Deer and Baby Deer were posing for us.
During the evening and through the night it was raining but on the next morning like a miracle the blue skies appeared , we immediately took advantage of the situation and took of for the days adventure,first to Beartown S.P that has some beautiful rock formations that are a result of nature doing ,it is a “Rock Garden”.
Not far from there is Drop Mountain Battlefield S.P WV,with a museum,observation tower and a lot of history.
The vistas are breath taking.
After our picnic we took a scenic drive on HWY 150 that took us through mountain tops of Monongahela National Forest with beautiful lookouts in Pocahontas County,during this relatively short drive we had weather changes from sunshine to heavy clouds,thunders,lightening and rain.
On one of our stops we saw how the moister lifts from the valley to the top of the mountains.
As we descended towards Marlinton WV we got in the middle of a Motorbike Rally that took place on the main drag with music,food and lots of motorbikes-nothing like good surprise ….
