Classic Glade Creek Mill

Babcock State Park has 4,000 or so wild acres within the New River Gorge, spectacular views into the gorge (Joan's pic), and a few really interesting historic sites, but this mill is its most famous feature. If you search the web, you'll find thousands of versions of this photo. A few months ago we discovered a picture of the mill on Joan's mom's wall; Thelma didn't realize we'd been there, she just liked the photo. So do I.

 

Very picturesque, but only marginally authentic.

 

Anyway, our cabin was down the crick a half mile or so. The mill's not why we visit the park, but it's certainly worth a photograph or seven.
