We left off yesterday in a heavy rain in
. These storms that we drove through were very heavy but small enough that we would drive out of them in a short time, but while in them it was hard to see the road in front of you. A few miles on down the road (actually it was up and down and up and down) it was completely dry. West Virginia
And still going up.
Here we are crossing the
Kanawha River in . Charleston, WV
We stayed at a KOA located on
Foxfire Road near Huntington,
and getting near where they hold the Kentucky Derby you see a lot of horse ranches. Kentucky
And I think that this may be an entrance to the
track, don’t know for sure. Derby
And of course a castle; don’t most people have one of these?
Back out on the open road and still in the hills.
We spent the next night at a KOA at
Horse Cave which is near to . When leaving, my wife took a picture of this old barn. Mammoth Cave National Park
, we got a few pictures of it and here is a skyline view. Nashville
We spent the next night just southwest of Birmingham/Bessemer area in a campground behind a Loves truck stop in a little town of
McCalla, . Headed west on I-20 and wouldn’t you know it, ran into rain again. Alabama
The less expensive place that we stayed was one of the nicest and well kept RV parks. The reason it was so inexpensive was that it was part of hotel, riverboat gambling complex and they figured (wrongly) that we would go spend a lot of money gambling. Here is picture of part of the RV park.
Pulled out of the campground, made a left turn and then a right turn onto the bridge crossing the old
After driving through another state we finally got back to
We decided to stay one more night before going home. We stopped at a small RV park off route 59 that turned out to be a really nice .
And of course there had to be a souvenir and antique place right across the road from the RV park entrance. Somehow we managed to turn left toward Cut & Shoot and didn’t stop.
We really enjoyed the trip and taking it slow and easy made it a restful trip, also.
You all have a good day now, you hear?
