voice one:

spruce knob, west virginia

a good place to begin a visit to west virginia is at spruce knob. it is about one thousand five hundred meters high, the highest mountain in the state. you can drive your car slowly up a rough road to the top.

there are places to stop along the road to look at the fields and forests down below and far in the distance. at the top, you follow a short path to a stone-and-steel observation tower. on either side of the path are what look like river beds of big rocks. wildflowers of different colors brighten the rocky land. from the tower, you see wilderness in all directions.

voice two:

whispering spruce trail follows a circular path around the observation tower. the path leads past an open field covered with huge rocks, through a group of tall spruce trees, and past a field of blueberry bushes. off in the distance you see a valley way below and lines of bluish gray mountains that seem to reach forever.

spruce knob has more than one hundred kilometers of hiking trails. some of them are paths made in the early nineteen hundreds by men who climbed the mountain to cut trees. it also has a lake for fishing and a campground where people can stay.

(music)

voice one:

near spruce knob is one of the best-known places in west virginia -- seneca rocks. this rock formation is made of white-gray quartzite, a kind of sandstone. it is about three hundred meters above the river that flows below. when the sun shines on the almost straight-sided rocks, they look like bright shining wings rising out of a mountain of green trees.
