West Virginia, A Great Place to Hang Your Hat and to Visit Also

December 22, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 211

The United States is truly an awesome country, as there are all kinds of folks, the diversity of people, culture, and scenery is superb in every way, how lucky we all are. Not long ago, someone contacted me from West Virginia, and I couldn't help but allow that famous song to run through my head; "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver.

The mountains in West Virginia are spectacular, I've been to every city in the country, and can't tell you how many times I've just turned off the Freeway in West Virginia to take a long scenic route, and often got more than I bargained for, but loved the adventures just the same. I've often wanted to stay longer. I've past roads in the middle of nowhere, not knowing where they went, but longing to take a chance, take a turn, and go exploring - it's as if the road was calling me forth.

Well, I guess if I'd been on a Honda Goldwing instead of a motor coach, I just might have. Someday, I'd like to do that (Spring or Summer of course), just take one of those roads, just to see where it goes, such curiosity you'd share if you were in the same position there. Perhaps, you'd take the chance, and with fate you'd dance. Yes, that old country road, John Denver got it right, he captured the essence in fact. You see, if you'd have seen what I've seen, you'd agree too.

Yes, that old road, where on Earth does it go, someone knows, someone in W. Virginia, were life is simple, and resources abundant. I'd like to take everyone one of those roads, spend a year, and see it all. "Take me home, country road" - well, for me, I'd like to do this in more states than just W. Virginia, I've experienced the same sensation in Montana, Wyoming New Mexico, California, Nevada, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, and in the New England states too. It's amazing, what a beautiful country we live in.

Still, W. Virginia is so beautiful, so mysterious, so inviting, so interesting, it's simply amazing. Yes, sometimes the weather is treacherous, but when it's a clear day, there is so much to see, it's so beautiful. Many folks in the city never get the chance to see it, but they should. They really should. Perhaps, you will consider visiting W. Virginia, meeting some of the folks, and I am sure you'll understand too.
