Ansted, WV - New River Horsehoe Bend

View from above of a dramatic horseshoe bend of the New River, and an interesting entrance and egress of a railroad line, in Hawks Nest State Park, near Ansted, West Virginia. Locally, the overlook is called Lovers' Leap. It is the location of legendary stories of romantically inspired suicides by young lovebirds who cannot be together due to family and cultural obstacles.
