A Mountain Drive

I took A. and the girls to visit my sister in Blacksburg today, and after a wonderful afternoon I decided to take a really rural road back to the in-laws' house in Roanoke (instead of relying on the interstate). This was one of the views that we saw as we were driving along -- it's incredible to realize, even after having been raised in this part of the state, that places like this still exist. Living in the D.C. area, you don't get to see this too often!

I feel the same way about Louisville, only I don't have to drive more than 30 minutes to vast stretches of farmland. Louisville has gotten so big that it is easy to forget that most of Ky still looks like your picture here.

That's a lovely picture - glad I didn't give you bad directions when you were leaving town.
Nice to see you're posting your photos again!

Frankly, anything is better than that stretch of 81 between Blacksburg/Christiansburg and Roanoke. Did you go up through Catawba to 311?
