"New River Gorge"
12" x 16" acrylic on canvas panel
In 1996 while serving in the Marines a group of us went white water rafting down this river, & fell in love with the place. I have rafted the New River, The Upper & Lower Gauley, & taken a plane flight on a 4 seater for $10 off a cliff flying underneath this bridge. While banking hard the plane door flew open. Wild times. 24 years later the place is now the newest National Park, & just as beautiful.
