Day trip

It was a rain on rain off day yesterday but we still took off on our one day trip.  Sherry wanted to go down to Matewan to see how it has changed. This is the town where we lived for most of our lives and raised our children.  Matewan is in the land of the Hatfield's and McCoy's the family's that had the famous battle back in the early 1900's. Also the area is famous for the battle between the coal miners and the Baldwin Felts security guards that the coal company's had.
We took the mountain top highway that is fairly new and the first time we have been on this road.
As you can see when it wasn't raining it was foggy.
It was amazing at the amount of rock and soil that had to be removed to build the highway.  Looking up at the rock walls looked more like the landscape of the western states.
We had a nice day and Sherry sure had a good time she even got to see and talk with one of her school friends. We also had dinner in town at the Mexican Restaurant.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
