On May 1st, Leah and I joined forces with the folks over at Visit Southern West Virginia to host a hike on one of West Virginia’s many fabulous trails. The Grandview section of the park was our destination, and with sunny skies, cool weather, and a great group of folks, we couldn’t have asked for a better time! The Grandview Rim Trail overlooks the New River, and there are awesome overlook platforms along the way that make for great photo opps! The trail is partly shaded by rhododendron and mountain laurel, making it a great destination when the plants are in bloom.

To top off the hike, the wonderful team over at The Dish Cafe in Daniels, W.Va., met us at the end to prepare a delicious lunch: polenta cakes, grass-fed burgers, and salad with homemade dressing. Delicious! Thanks guys! We’ll be back for those avocado brownies 😉
