My garden is currently soaked. It's been soaked since yesterday afternoon. So I thought I'd show you a few pictures from our road trip to West Virginia. Obviously, I'm not going to bore you with 700 miles' worth of pictures, but I thought some of you might like to see the scenery from our part of the world.
First up, this sign made me laugh. "Cheat Lake" and "Fairchance Road"? It's for real, and I may be the only one amused by this choice of names, but there you are.
Looking up the interstate in West Virginia. They cut through the rock so the road wouldn't be quite as steep. Aren't the colors wonderful?
This picture doesn't begin to show the depth of the hollows between the hills. But it tries.
This was a nice sign to see, although we still had 200 miles to go before we were home.
My little boys took this picture. Evidently, a giant paint can beside the road is highly amusing.
And at one point my daughter hung her sunglasses off the back of her head. Then she took up scolding the back seat, "Don't make me turn this car around! I will turn around right now!"
For the record, I never said anything like that. I prefer to drive all night, when they're asleep.
