Although it is not West of the Mississippi River I thought you may like to know about a new NP that is about to come to fruition.
The New River George, located in West Virginia is probably best known for the annual day the bridge is closed to vehicle traffic and people are allowed to bungee jump the gorge. This area has the best white water rafting East of the Mississippi with many Class III and IV rapids. The fishing is also outstanding!
You can read more about it here:
So if you find yourself lost in the East consider checking out our newest NP!
