Elkhorn Lake, Virginia






Hey there!! On 7/6/2015 we got to go to this 54 acre lake, Elkhorn Lake, Virginia. Not sure how it go it's name, there are no elk or horns? I'm not sure if the elk use to roam these lands or???! This lake is part of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. The whole drive to this lake the skies were threatening the chance of rain, The hubby said it was suppose to be more southern storm, but those skies were wild, as we were loading up the kayaks to leave the skies opened & it poured down. 


Please take a listen to the vlog of that day!! Enjoy!!! Beth ( :

I love the sound of the breeze/wind and when I first saw the tip of your canoe I thought'd already been to Elkhorn Lake, silly me. Peaceful video...

Great shots. I love the views from on the water.
It is fun trying to work out why some places are named isn't it! Very beautiful whatever it is called. xx

I have enjoyed your blog for a few years now. Took a break from the computer this summer and am so glad to see you're still blogging now that it's time to visit again! My cousin, whom I adore, lives in south central VA, with her family. She and her husband have started kayaking, hiking and biking. Their goal is to hit every state park in VA. I'm going to recommend your blog to her. I get excited seeing where you've been and what she has to look forward to. Great photos.

Never been to nor heard of Elkhorn Lake, Virginia. Looks like a beautiful lake. Hope you finally did get to kayak...

Not much fall color here in our part of TN yet--but we have had quite a bit of rain lately... I'm ready for some colder weather AND sunshine... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Fine views of this great looking place. I'm glad you were loading when the rain came to minimize how wet you got. :-)

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
