Beautiful West Virginia

We travelled to Virginia this weekend to watch our daughter, Amanda, play volleyball. On the way we saw the most beautiful Fall colors! The darkest red oaks are my favorite! This photo was taken in southern West Virginia. It is amazing to me to realize that at one time, this is what Ohio and Indiana looked like.

They say (who exactly says it, I don't know) that a squirrel could travel from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Mississippi River without ever touching the ground - simply by hopping from tree to tree! Now look at our area. The landscape is a checkerboard of green spaces. As we travelled along the interstate, we came upon a valley just as the morning fog was lifting. Absolutely beautiful! Dave swears he saw a Raven, but of course, it was out his window and all I could see was the roof lining of the truck!
