Mid June rosy azalea bloom.
This is a two day trip for Friday 16th into Saturday 17th. Weather permitting, sunrise from the top of the mountain is beautiful. This requires a 45 minute ride from the base of the mountain in time for sunrise. (Thus the 4 AM start time on Saturday, if necessary). Fog on the mountain would be welcome however, the azaleas and local scenery will provide outstanding photo opps all day long. Due to local motel availability book your room early. I will be staying at the Fort Hill Motel.
If you stay Saturday night also, Seneca Rocks, Canaan Valley, Spruce Knob, and Black Water Falls will provide plenty of photo opportunities to fill your Sunday on the way home.
