~ Almost Heaven!! ... West Virginia ~
Rebecca, this first picture is for you! ... not a common site but they are around ... & yes, we've actually had to 'pleasure' this place! Chuckle.
Old structure along side the road that speaks history of years gone by.
A gorgeous misty morn surrounding the hills & barn built on a stilt footing.
The next 2 pics are of a historical machinery place along side a river, the old structure was interesting ... there was a wee bridge to cross from the road to walk down to. Really a pretty setting.
One morn we happened upon one of my two favorite wildlife animals, just standing in a front yard ... she watched me, I watched her. She never flinched.
The old sanitorium remains ... it was apparently one of the largest. It is in rubble now.
A unique tree, obviously damaged along the way ... loved the growth structure.
And, a peaceful babbling brook ... one of a ba-zillion as you meander thru God's country.
We always take the back roads, avoiding freeways whenever possible, to get the real joy of viewing the 'real' land ... so as not to miss the beauty of this earth.
(For more on our trip, read last week's posts as well)
~~ May you all have a safe & blessed holiday weekend. ~~
SPECIAL REQUEST, please pray for my DHs brother who was operated on last night ... serious operation.
