Well folks been a while

We are still in the hills so lets catch up some while I have an internet connection.

After spending a few days at the Guyandotte COE campground we were off on the road again.
One night it was at a Walmart so nothing special since all of them are more or less the same.
The town was Marion, Virginia where the price of gas was $2.48 a gallon which was a surprise because in West Virginia it was $2.89 a gallon.

Our next stop was Cave Mountain Lake Campground in the Jefferson National Forest.

I had a nice site or I thought until we were ready to leave then I noticed I was under a walnut tree!  You guessed it my white roof in now spotted with walnut stain.  And of course no electric hook up but that's ok, with the solar and the generators we had plenty of power.  Only thing is this campground allowed only 2 hour generator running a day.

Here is the small lake that gave the campground its name.  A real nice beach a swimming area.

Name even felt good that day to do a little walking and she enjoyed the area.

A really spacious picnic area under the shade trees.  Only this day it was a misty rainy day.

When the rain started coming down harder we headed for cover in the pavilion.  Man was this nice with picnic tables and would you believe it a stone fire place.

A couple of hiking trails for those that are able to do the walking.

Nice small stream that comes down out of the mountains and over the rocks that we could hear when we went to bed and had the window open over our heads.

After intering the Shenandoah National Park and on the Skyline Drive we drove by and also stopped at more overlooks than we could count.
We came to our destination of Loft Mountain Campground.

We got checked in at the Ranger Booth.

Had a very nice site for a couple of days.

They really do have bears here.  On the first evening we were here a bear came walking across the road in front of our motor home.  That was something to see, only Nancy wanted me to hurry and close the door which was open.
We pulled over at this overlook on the way to our next campground.  So what do you know there is a good signal on the ATT Hotspot to catch up on my blog.

It is hard to write here as I fined myself gazing out the front window looking at the beautiful mountain tops.  So with that I finish up until the next time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Glad you are Safely Enjoying your trip through the mountains but where is the picture of the Bear? We've given up on AT&T and are sticking with Verizon for the time being.

It's about time.
