New Year’s Vacation: Travel Day

It’s the 5th day of the year, and I’ve already been in 4 states!  Today, I spent the majority of my time driving to Maryland to visit my family.  My parents live in Western Maryland, which means my route to get there from Raleigh, goes through both Virginia and West Virginia.  I didn’t capture much from today, but here are a few pictures of some of what I saw on my way.

Entering Virginia.  Unfortunately, I missed the West Virginia sign, and I never saw a Maryland one.  Probably because at that point, I was more concerned about the “falling rock” signs everywhere as well as trying my hardest to not run off the edge of the cliff. :p

I made a quick stop at Short Pump Town Center since it wasn’t out of my way so I could exercise my legs (and speed shop)!

The sun was setting, and I could see the mountains in the distance.

Somewhere in West Virginia.  It’s pitch black when no one else is on the road.

Can you believe this is a road?!  I’m not even kidding.  One wrong turn, and you’re off the edge.  Also, there’s no cell service, so it’s really exciting when you get lost.

Look!  It’s a Jack in the box!  My parents dog all cuddled up in his box ready for bed.  It’s going to be a crisp 18 degrees tonight, and I’ll most likely be waking up to snow in the morning.

Check back tomorrow for more adventures, and don’t forget to follow me on instagram @lynda_lou_who

Bows and Arrows,
