Back roads

Today I went to Berkeley Springs which is about an hour and half drive from my home. I always like to take the back roads because they are really beautiful and make the trip even better. I remember growing up when a Sunday drive was what everyone did. Gas was cheap or at least we thought so at the time. So on the way home I decided to stop along the road to take photos to share what I saw. Enjoy.

You can put on John Denver's song about West Virginia called "Country Road", it will certainly be appropriate. So here we go..."country roads take me home..."


Or maybe a Turkey Trot might be a better song to play.


This is where I park to see the Spotted Salamanders. Up on Sleepy Creek Mountain.

It can get a little confusing on these back roads.


Switch back.

Quick stop at the marsh.






 Red Bud trees were in full bloom.

That was a wonderful ride! The switchback is the type where you can stick your arm out the window and clean off the tail lights! Well, that's what I was told ... way back when. :)
