Hawks Nest View

New River Train

It’s now a tradition for me to stop at Hawks Nest State Park on my trips to and from Kentucky. I really enjoy getting off the interstate and taking the winding roads that traverse the small towns of West Virginia on The Midland Trail.

This time I had the good fortune to watch a train travel the tracks on my stop at the Hawks Nest overlook, and I experimented with some settings with my new Olympus Tough TG-1.

Of course, no hike to the overlook would be complete with a view of a red-tailed hawk at Hawks Nest, and although this camera’s zoom isn’t up for capturing birds in flight, I enjoyed watching it soar on the thermals. This camera has fun panorama, landscape and HDR settings, so my attention was on the scenery, which is certainly stunning on a clear summer day and well worth the short hike.
