The Perfect Picnic

We picked the perfect spot on a knob in a national forest. Though a 3 hour drive, we were rewarded with the tall spruce and mossy forest floor in what could accurately be described as "God's Country". I always wanted to come back here and asked my husband if he'd want to make the drive. No problem-and he'd fix the foods! The place, the day and the meal was perfect!

From an ice packed insulated bag we filled our plates with:

  • Fruits and vegetables. Cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, grapes and strawberries.
  • Protein and calcium rich aged cheddar cheese slices.
  • Lean protein turkey breast.
  • Whole grain rye crisp crackers.
For a beverage, I had a low sodium V-8, he a cranberry grape juice.  We also had our after meal coffee from a preheated thermos. In the car was plenty of water.

Our picnic today was at Gaudineer Knob on the Randolph-Pocohantas County lines of West Virginia.  Almost Heaven is an accurate description.

There are 4 picnic sites and a 1/2 mile loop with a view from this 4400 feet knob.
