New River Gorge Overlook

Dawn's first light casts its subtle hues of lavender over the New River Gorge and a CSX railroad bridge. CSX Transportation owns 70 miles of track that weaves alongside the New River. The New River Gorge remained almost inaccessible until 1873, when the railroad opened up this isolated part of West Virginia. A closer look may reveal a long line of rail-cars beginning a bridge crossing, off to the mines for another load of West Virginia coal.
