New River Gorge, WV - View

West Virginia's New River Gorge and the river -- one of the oldest in North America -- that gives it its name in Fayette County, West Virginia. Much of the area now lies within a 70,000-acre U.S. National Park that is a favorite destination for outdoor activities, ranging from hiking to BASE jumping (parachuting from a fixed structure) -- the latter including hundreds of jumps on the one day in October that the National Park Service closes the New River Gorge Bridge over the chasm.
