Cooper's Rock - June 2012

We made a spontaneous trip up to Cooper's Rock on Monday.  We usually have visited the lovely area before this time of year.  We've been so busy here at our own property, I guess it didn't occur to us to go until just now.  It was refreshing.  We never fail to enjoy the exploring/hiking/playing excursion.  It's just so beautiful up there.
 We saw this tiny, baby fawn on our drive in.  
When we arrived at the parking area, we were greeted by a scupture of a sleeping giant, made by some WVU students in honor of earth day.  It was very interesting to inspect it and see how they made it.  After that, we ate some snacks, played on the playground equipment, and made a picture stop at a picnic table.  Last, we hiked part of a trail and then explored in, around, and on the wonderful rock formations. 

For some reason, I'm having trouble getting captions in between pictures.  Most all is self-explanatory anyway.  There is one picture of Elijah touching the moss.  He was so fascinated with the moss.  I think he thought he'd found heaven when we got there.  He had the time of his life.  In the above picture he figured out that Mom was trying to get everyone to put on a certain facial expression for the group photo.  He wasn't exactly sure how to do it, but he was trying to conform.
