Cass Scenic Railroad State Park is located in Pocahontas County, WV. Featuring operational geared steam locomotives that ply the rails from the town of Cass, you are transported back to a time of company towns and logging camps. The trips into the mountains give the visitor incredible vies of the vast wilderness and close-up encounters with these original steam driven locomotives. Here Climax No. 9, originally built in 1919, sits at the Cass water tower.

In February 1983 the Shenandoah Valley experienced a 30-inch snowfall. One of the things my new wife and I realized was that we did not have a camera to take pictures of the event. So as soon as the snow melted enough to move, we went to our local photo shop and purchased a used 35mm range finder camera. I was given a 12-exposure roll of film and told to go out, give it a try, and bring the camera back if I did not like the results. One of the images from that roll resulted in my first landscape. Since then I've improved my technique and equipment, but the main focus of my photography has remained the same: nature and landscapes. ~Frank Ceravalo
