Carter Caves State Park

When we arrived at Carter Caves State Park, we found picnic tables alongside Tygarts Creek, the creek originating from Tygarts State Forest. We parked and took out our cooler to have lunch at one of the table. The boys loved being right at the stream because they had wellies on. They ate and dipped their wellies in the cold water at the same time. I took off my shoes to walk in the stream. The water was refreshingly cold.

Carter Caves State park lies inside Tygarts State Forest. There are more than 20 twisting caverns underground. The boys took a cave tour called the X Cave tour while I wandered around by myself. I discovered a short trail alongside the creek going through a cave roof above ground. The creek was beautiful, clear, winding, rushing and steamy! It was shallow enough for me to wade across. I can’t remember the last time I tried to cross a creek on bare feet. It was thrillingly the first time ever!

In the photos below, there is one of David’s new (used) car Chevy Tahoe. He bought it 1 month and a half ago. We really like it for trips because of its roominess and speed.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
