The State Of West Virginia, USA - Unravel Travel TV
The scenic rural state of West Virginia with its abundance of natural resources provides a perfect backdrop for a true American adventure holiday. Driving tours lead to quaint B&Bs and renowned warm hospitality, breathtaking landscapes carve routes for mountain biking, motorbike journeys and RVs exploring state parks. The camouflaged tracks of the many hiking trails and fishing areas display the natural beauty while championship golf courses, ski runs and white water rafting offer seasonal sporting activities.
Offering unique Appalachian culture, John Denver's ballad adequately describes its state's country roads, dramatic scenery at every turn and the spectacular kaleidoscope of colour in the Autumn. It is a state which is 80% forested, with 7 state forests, 36 state parks and 200,000 acres of protected woodland parks interlaced by 2,000 miles of rivers and streams. Accommodation ranges from log cabins, motels, guest houses to the historical Greenbrier Resort, favoured by Presidents.
West Virginia boasts seven wonders of the natural world, from beaches, waterfalls, high plains plateau to river and mountain trails, rock formations and gorges. There are several lake beaches offering swimming and boating in lush green settings. The 2,700-acre Summersville Lake and 1,500-acre Sutton Lake are great for mountain biking and hiking trails. Walkers can follow the Gentle Trail at Blackwater Falls State Park for a great view of the state's largest waterfall at 63-feet and one of its most photographed spots. Named for its amber-coloured water, the falls spill into the Blackwater Canyon and great for hiking and biking.
The New River Gorge is the perfect landscape for rafting, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking along one of the world's oldest and scenic white water rivers. The second-tallest bridge, the New River Gorge Bridge is close by. A visit here can be elevated by taking a walk on this 876-foot-highNew River Gorge Bridge catwalk for stunning views of the gorge from one of the top ten steel structures in the world.
Dolly Sods is a 4,000-foot high plains plateau in the Monongahela National Forest. Here blueberries and huckleberries can be picked and where mountain laurel and other flora bloom. Hike or ride horses along the trails near West Virginia's highest point, Spruce Knob. From its observation tower at 4,863feet, there are great views.
Walk the moderate Seneca Rocks Trail up to the summit for amazing scenery atop the 900foot rock formation overlooking the confluence of Seneca Creek and the North Fork South Branch Potomac River. The Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area offers world-class climbing, mountain biking and hiking. Or for a more relaxed pass-time, there's fishing for bass or trout at one of the state's many fishing hot spots: Williams River, Cranberry River, Cherry River, Cheat River, Birch River and Beech Fork Lake.
West Virginia is convenient to reach from Washington Dulles Airport, being just over one hour's drive to its eastern panhandle where Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located, the heart of civil war history in this state, when back in1863, West Virginia became the 35th State in the Union, the only state born out of the Civil War and today celebrates its culture, beauty and independence.

Scary! 14260 feet Mt Evans Colorado Drive 9 of 17 DOWN Compare with Pikes Peak
Highest auto road in the USA - Mount Evans Colorado. Prettier than Pikes Peak and NO DUST to spoil the tundra. However, most people will find that it is scarier to drive.
Neighboring towns: Georgetown, Silver Plume, Idaho Springs, Golden, Brookvale, Highland Park, Evergreen, Conifer
One of the three fourteeners visible from Denver, Mount Evans dominates the mountainous horizon west of the city. Its great sculpted eastern face greets the dawn each day, capturing the morning light. Much of the wilderness lies above timberline, and place names such as Sawtooth, Frozen Lake, and Abyss Lake offer a hint of the rugged glacial terrain that characterizes the area.
Crawling up into the wilderness, but outside the circuitous boundary, a paved road runs to the top of Mount Evans, the highest paved road in America. Abyss Lake, surrounded by fabulous scenery, rests in a rock-rimmed gorge at 12,550 feet in the heart of the wilderness. You can reach it by hiking seven strenuous miles (one way) up a glacier-carved valley.
The area's 14,000 foot peaks and proximity to Denver combine with the summit road to draw large numbers of visitors. Nevertheless, the Mount Evans Wilderness contains notable biological features, harboring not only alpine tundra, but arctic tundra as well. This is one of the few places south of the Arctic Circle, where such tundra is found. It differs from alpine tundra by virtue of its moisture, as it contains countless small pools of water. In contrast, most tundra in Colorado is dry and brittle once uncovered by snow. The Mount Goliath Natural area contains another of the region's unusual features - a prime stand of bristlecone pine. These gnarled elders of the forest often live 1,500 to 2,000 years, growing at infinitesimal rates. The trees' twisted and contorted trunks offer stark evidence of their bitter fight for survival against the elements.
Two species of animals less frequently observed elsewhere have become popular attractions here. A herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep live around Mount Evans, and mountain goats are frequently seen from the summit road. The vast expanses of tundra offer visitors numerous opportunities to spy more common critters, including ptarmigan and yellow-bellied marmots.

In a setting that's delightfully far removed from the real world, tree-shaded streets are lined with lovely Victorian buildings and little storybook cottages.

American Southwest (#07): Ashcroft Ghost Town, Colorado
Ashcroft ... two prospectors from the new camp called Aspen found silver deposits along Castle Creek and formed their own camp, Castle Forks City, where the two forks of Castle Creek join. The boom year was 1882, when rich ore was found in the Montezuma and Tam O'Shanter mines. The owners received financial backing from Horace Tabor, who had recently become a very rich man in Leadville. In 1883, when Tabor came with his new bride Baby Doe to inspect his holdings, miners enjoyed a twenty-four-hour celebration that included a ball, banquet, and free drinks in the town's twenty saloons.
By then the place was known as Ashcraft, named with a slight variation - for prospector and town promoter T. E. Ashcraft, who had actually founded a short-lived competing camp called Highland. Ashcroft had a school, bowling alley, sawmill, smelter, two newspapers, six hotels, and a population of two thousand, making it larger than Aspen.
Ashcroft's ore bodies were quickly depleted, however, and by 1885 many of its buildings had been moved to Aspen, where major silver strikes attracted miners from all over. Ashcroft was a has-been, home to only a hundred summer residents. It was a ghost town by 1900, although the post office hung on for twelve more years, perhaps by bureaucratic oversight.
During World War II, the town was used for ski training by the Tenth Mountain Division from Camp Hale. After World War II, Stuart Mace, commander of the canine division of the Tenth Mountain Division, returned to Ashcroft to raise and train huskies. Mace and his dogs were featured in the 1950s television series Sergeant Preston of the Yukon with Ashcroft often used as the setting for the show.
Today Ashcroft is being protected and restored by the Aspen Historical Society. One can visit this genuine ghost town, enjoy the site, and leave with the feeling that the town will still be there if one returns years later. That is, unfortunately, seldom the case. The two-story Hotel View is the grandest and most photogenic structure in town. Other buildings include cabins, a mercantile, jail, blacksmith's shop, assay office, laundry, and post office. A saloon is the current headquarters for the historical society, where old photographs, account of the town's history.
