Headed Home


We’re driving back to North Carolina today!

Goodbye to the farmhouse! Goodbye to the porch!

Goodbye to the old well and the washboards and the churns.

Goodbye to the twisty turny mountain roads and the little cemetery in the woods.

Goodbye to great-great-grandfather’s house and the old cabin and the holler.


If you haven’t seen enough West Virginia pics already or you’re a glutton for punishment, visit my photoblog for all of them. Click on the “West Virginia” category in the sidebar.
