TRAVEL THEME: MOUNTAINS

TRAVELING THE MOUNTAINS

OF WEST VIRGINIA

ABOARD THE POTOMAC EAGLE SCENIC RAILROAD

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the fall of 2012 I took an amazing senic train ride through the mountains of West Virginia along the South Bend of the Potomas River where Bald Eagles are known to be sighted.  

Seated in the open air train car I was able to capture the beauty of the mountains and the curves of the river.  

After some of the guest spotted a bald eagle I was quick to capture it resting on a log in the river, even though I was a little excited and not too steady on my feet, as a result.  Nevertheless I was able to get it on film.

Visit Ailsa’s Where’s my backpack? to see more mountains.  I hope you enjoyed my little train ride aboard the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad.

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!

  10. Hi Francine, I know that you have heard me speak of my cabin in the mountains (I think I know). It is located in the same county (Hardy) as the Potomac Eagle!
