On the Road Again

I'm off to Fairview, West Virginia today, a small town near the WV-Pennsylvania line, to tell stories at the library and the elementary school. It's always a pleasure to visit this town, and to soak up the atmosphere of history in a mining community that has known much history, some good and some tragic.

Last Friday when we returned home (and boy do I have photos and stories to tell you about that trip!) a thunderstorm blew in and just as quickly left. The sun peeped through the raindrops so I knew there would be a rainbow. I hurried up to the top of the ridge and took photos. Here is one; I'll share more when I return this evening.










See you tonight!

Love your double rainbow. You need to get "frequent driver miles!" :)

I was just in Fairview myself this weekend. There is a cool story there concerning the Highland Witch - a local "witch" who is buried in the local Highland cemetery.

I love those photos, but the double rainbow, WOW!! What a wonderful picture.

After Jason's comment, I'm dying to hear some Fairview stories! The town name is ringing the proverbial bell but I can't remember why.

Look at those gorgeous colours! The pictures are lovely.

Have fun at the event and let us know how it goes.

I thought I was only going to post one, but Blogger was putting them up so fast I did several--and then forgot to change my comments to reflect that! The price of hurrying too much.

The light was amazing that evening and I could not take enough pitures. I ended up with 42 good ones. I was very tired at that point but when I got up on the hill I was so energized and amazed by the light, color and sky--clouds and stormy rain in one direction, brilliant sun in the other, mist in another--that I could not get enough. It was a natural high that lasted me for the rest of the evening.
