This West Virginia Peak And Cave Pairing Takes You From The Top Of The World To the Bowels Of The Earth In A Single Day

Contrasts in nature abound, and we all experience them, whether we’re out hiking or just sitting on our back porch watching evening fall. We daily live through the morning and evening juxtaposition of light and darkness. Seasonally, we see the verdant greens of spring and summer contrasted with the crimson and brown hues of fall and winter, contrasts of life and death. And in West Virginia’s Grant County, one can also experience another of nature’s contrasts: high and low, peak and trough, mountain-top and cave depth.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
