Having never been to Canaan Valley, W.Va., before this trip, I must say this was a life-changing visit. There is something truly special, truly magical, about this place. Maybe it’s the sea of mountains, or maybe the quaint hole-in-the-wall shops and restaurants in town. But at the end of the day, I feel that the stunning landscape is merely the backdrop to the community that lives and breathes this wild and wonderful valley.

Take my advice and put this one on your bucket list; you can knock off BRO Ultimate 100 adventure #19 by taking the weekend off and heading to White Grass Touring Center. Click here to read the article on White Grass in this month’s issue for more information on what else to do in the area.
