camp for the night in Daniel Boone National Forest

 


a bit of breakfast, loaded up and on the rode again heading north to the New River Gorge And not as the names means the river has been there some 65 million years, actully being one of the oldest river, for many years you could not cross the gorge but had to drive many miles up and down it but a bridge was built to ease the trip, then back on the road to Gauley Bridge and a water falls a nice stop. Watched a few rail cars being filled with West Virginia coal, then on to check out the Capital building in Charleston, as it was Memorial Day it as closed. A trip throught the back roads of West Virginia into Kentucky for the night, setting up my tent in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Clear Creek campground, with Memorial weekend over I was the only camper there except for the camp host. Was having some dinner and couple beers when the camp host came by and chatted a while telling me the cop would be coming by soon and I would have to hide my beer as this is a dry county. Finshed my beer and headed off to bed.
