New River Gorge

I think James and I were in need of a small vacation so last weekend we had a daycation in West Virginia by hanging out all afternoon in the sun at the New River Gorge. The New River Gorge near Hinton, West Virginia is a white water river, flowing northward through deep canyons. And don't let the name fool you - the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. This national rivers park encompasses over 70,000 acres of land.
The New River Gorge Bridge at a height of 876 feet makes it the highest vehicular bridge in the Americas, and the second-highest in the world. Before the 2004 opening of the Millau Viaduct in France, it was the highest in the world.

We got a pontoon boat and a wave runner

James the River Captain

Oh yeah, that's living.
