Coopers Rock State Forest

Coopers Rock State Forest is a brief drive east of Morgantown, West Virginia.  I visited there recently on a brief whirlwind family visit.

The area is high above a river valley, which leads there are great views.  That also makes it popular.  The parking areas were jammed when I headed out there with my mother, older sister, and her boyfriend.  The viewpoints up high are pretty accessible, but for some reason I took almost no photos from there.  The real curiosity was the rock formations below.  We had a nice picnic, and then Joe and I took a brief hike that skirted below the highest cliffs.  Later, my sister Hannah and I embarked on a different trail.  Great rock formations were everywhere.  Coopers Rock is a great place to visit, and I will cherish the memories I was able to share with parts my family I don’t see often enough.  Never enough time!
