We recently encouraged everyone to share stories about their experiences at NROC. One of our staff members, Aaron, wanted to express how the changing season affects his personal experience. His story is one of many that we will tell, and we urge you to contribute your stories, as well.
Here is what Aaron wants to share:
As it nears the end of the season, it’s easy to look around and see how things have come full circle here at NROC. As the days go by the trees look more and more like they did when I first arrived here in February, gradually losing their leaves. It brings back the feelings I had back in the winter, when everything was new and fresh and all the guides were in preparation for the upcoming season.
Since then we’ve seen the leaves come and are now going, still giving us an absolute spectacular and constantly changing color show ever day. Along with the leaves we’ve seen countless people; both guides and customers come and go, as is part of the life we have here, and every day we see more and more people coming out to experience the rocks and the canopy tour.
It’ll be amazing to see what the next few weeks will bring, the colder temps will stay for good, and the leaves will soon be completely off the trees, the rest of us guides that have stuck around for the fall season will go off to our winter jobs at the various mountains both in the Canaan Valley area, as well as out west to various places. Only a few will stay the winter here in the North Fork Valley, but as usual, this place will never disappoint anyone with all of its natural beauty.
