Along the way to Ripley, West Virginia

Friday we went to Ripley to eat out with Mark and Sherry.
This is a 33 mile drive from Spencer so I thought I would take a few photos to show you what the drive looked light.
There are a few places like this along the way that should have been cleaned up years ago but have not.

But more of the beautiful ones along the way, like this place with a nice pond in the front yard.

Very few stretches of straight road and more of the curvy roads.

We ate at the Ma'ke Mia Pizza Restaurant across the street from the Court House.

Here the Last Public Execution in the State of West Virginia that you can read about on the plaque in front of the Court House.

Mark drove us back along a very narrow back road or maybe it was a path?
We were surprise when al of a sudden the mountains opened up to this large man made lake.
It was very nice with a large asphalt parking area and the people out on their boats relaxing and doing some fishing.
Thank you Mark for showing us some of the nice scenery.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

There are a lot of buildings like that throughout the country that should be taken down. Sometimes it's better to let someone else do the driving so you can Enjoy the scenery as well.
Be Safe.

It's about time.
