Going Across the Mountains, Day 1

Goin' cross the mountains, oh fare ye well,
Goin' cross the mountains, oh fare ye well...

We wound up the gravel road to their home, passing swaths of pale blue wild foxglove.

After an evening cookout, we headed for the bed-and-breakfast in Hinton called The Chestnut Revival. This is the place we laid our heads on this first day of our weekend trip:

More tomorrow about this place and early morning in Hinton, West Virginia.
