Last Week: In the Mountains

Re-posting, this time with the promised pics!

I have not had time to write about our trip to Snowshoe Mountain except for the part about staying at the Brazen Head Inn. Here's a little more, and more will follow. So many good things to write about in this month! Our trip across West Virginia took us through Richwood, in Nicholas County. Not because it's the fastest way, but because we really like the scenery along that route. We especially like one roadside park along the Cherry River, and try to stop there for a picnic whenever we're traveling through.


A storm had passed through the night before, but someone had already been by to cut this large tree so the road to the little park was clear. Thanks to whoever did that.

Larry looked for a flat rock for Derek's under-construction patio, but he didn't find one that suited him.

A fern found a friendly tree for shelter, and fall leaves for a carpet.


A footbridge crosses over to a trail on the other side of the water. one day we'll have time to explore the trail, but not on this trip.


Changing leaves, changing season.


Ummm, okay. Larry, I said, the sign says you can't fish in the well.
Larry has never been one to follow instructions. Fish he did, but the only thing he caught was a good laugh from a passer-by.

Hey Granny Sue!

You are one lucky lady getting to travel around our great West Virginia mountains during this time of the year! I really wanted to take a road trip up towards Canaan Valley but wasn't able to. Sigh.....

Anyway, I thought you might be interested in my fall leaf post that I recently posted. http://wvtreasures.blogspot.com/2009/10/fall-leaf-craft.html

Can't wait to see some great fall pictures from the mountains! I have taken a few good ones around my house that I plan to post real soon!

I'm very sad---not seeing any pictures at all! I refreshed twice; is it just me?

Granny Sue said...

No, it's Blogger being a pain again. I'll try again. Sorry, Susan!

You and Larry are birds of a feather, Warren ;-)

What gorgeously wonderful pics!

I absolutely love WV and have always dreamed of moving there since I was a little girl - just something about those hills. One day...
