White Oak Creek Falls

The entrance of the trail was over run by rhododendron, which gave the entrance a jungle vibe. The surrounding area, in which we spent the majority of our day, New River Gorge National River, was lush with the vegetation.

I am fond of rhododendron; my parents had a few in front of our house growing up. If I remember correctly, my Dad used the flowers in bloom to complement my Mom’s breakfast in bed on Mother’s day. This plant was also the only green starting off the Appalachian Trail in Georgia early April. If I were to acquire some land in the very much distant future, I wouldn’t mind planting these everywhere, get some of the jungle vibe at home. πŸ€™πŸ»πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸ€πŸŒΏ

Brush Creek Falls

Much further down the trail we discovered a couple of odd looking shrubs, though some as tall as what I would call tree height.

I don’t think it is what it looks to be, for it was everywhere along this trail, to this very much not so secret waterfall.
