Seneca Rocks

After roaming through Blackwater Falls State Park last month, we drove down to Seneca Rocks in the Monongahela National Forest.

In an alternate universe, there’s a fitter, braver adventuring Brandi who would go there to rock climb (that Brandi also flies an airplane and rides an ostrich). Alas, I’m not at all brave so I kept both feet planted firmly on the ground.

Instead, we nosed around the visitors center and an old homestead.

The garden was mostly spent but there were still some interesting vegetables and pretty flowers and things to enjoy.

In fact, the colors were striking!

We also admired the 900 foot tall rock formation from afar while seeking out climbers as they inched toward the top.

Someday, I’ll go back and do the hike but, for that day, it was a low key and relaxing stop before climbing back in the truck to head north toward home.

Not all adventures require bravery and excitement. Sometimes it’s just a quiet moment among friends, admiring the scenery and respecting someone else’s courage.
