Each Day Is New-Traveling West Virginia


Basil and I just wanted to get “out-of-town” for the day.  We really didn’t know where we were heading until I mentioned Fayetteville, WV.  We have no problem making a wonderful adventure out of a simple drive.

Of course, we took mostly back roads and childhood memories began to arise to the present.  I remembered going to Hawks Nest and up the Gauley River as a child.  There used to be a blue camper on a big rock at Glen Farris, but it has been replaced with a rustic cabin.

We finally arrived in Fayetteville and neither of us could remember being here in years.  This is such a historic town and many facilities for the people who enjoy white water rafting.  We had lunch at Pies and Pints and the quality of the pizza and salad was outstanding.  I can’t wait until they open in Charleston!

We took the drive down the one way road that goes under the New River Gorge Bridge.  I thought it would be scary, but I really enjoyed the drive.  I have lots of pictures to PROVE we actually did it.

We drove on to Sutton and some quick stops at the Flatwoods Outlets.  I am really not impressed with these stores and we headed back to Scott Depot.

I am totally amazed at the insight God used when He created the West Virginia Hills.  We have black diamonds under ground and mountains like no other.
