Our trip to West Virginia

Michael and Lyz on at the top of Seneca Rock. (Day Four)

This website is about the vacation that Lyz (myself) and Michael took from April 24 to May 2nd, 2004. This was the first real vacation without family that we've ever taken together.

The vacation started out in Maryland and we spent most of our time in the lovely mountains of West Virginia. Our trip consisted of hiking, checking out water falls, staying at 3 separate Bed and Breakfasts, and an incredible trip to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.

The following is a written and photographic journal of our travels. The journal entries were written on a notepad that I brought with me, I have typed them up so they are easier to read.
