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.
