Snowless winter in Blackwater Canyon, West Virginia
We've been having a snowless winter here in Washington, D.C., so we decided to make a short trip to the mountains of West Virginia to play in the snow. Unfortunately, the week before our trip, it was warm, it rained, and all the snow melted. Then, right before we got there, it got cold again. If it's going to be cold, shouldn't one at least be rewarded with some snow? Well, we did find a fun sled run with manmade snow and I did capture this photo of Blackwater Canyon and the Blackwater River. I think it turned out quite nicely, even if there wasn't any snow. I took the photo at dawn, when the temperature was about 17℉ (about -8℃). Brrrrrrrr.
