Natural splendor and outdoor adventure await at West Virginia’s New River Gorge National Park

Travels with Deb

I’m actually not fond of heights, but oddly I’m attracted to height-related experiences. They’re freaky as all get-out for me, yet the prospect of views and thrills pulls me in like a magnet. And when I do conquer my fears, whether hiking on an exposed trail with steep drop-offs, hot air ballooning, rappelling down a cliff or ziplining, it’s a rush and a major boost in self-confidence, not to mention the props I get for my accomplishment. My latest acrophobic adventure was doing the Bridge Walk across the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia’s New River Gorge National Park.
