Back of the House and View of Roaring Plains

From behind the house, you can see across the valley on to newly-designated National Wilderness Land. This photo was taken early in the building process in the summer of 2005. Approximately the top half of the distant ridge, named Roaring Plains, was designated wilderness in 2009. From the valley floor to the ridge is five miles and a 2500' climb, the steepest trail in WVa. There is a housing development on the lower part of the ridge, but it is hidden from direct view from the house by trees. The house was strategically sited to achieve this view.
