On our recent road trip we went through West Virginia twice both coming and going.

I remember pointing this sign out to my kids many years ago and explaining what it meant to our system of rivers: water falling on one side of the Divide will go to the Atlantic Ocean; water falling on the other side will to to the Gulf of Mexico.
All the best,

Here are a few images of barns in Western Maryland. Above is one that appears to be a quilt barn, but it is a much more intricate design than most that I've seen.

Our road trip continues today with images from Western Maryland.
See all of those churches above? This is Cumberland, Maryland, where many of the early settlers decided to stay after a difficult trip through the mountains with horses and wagons.
A few years ago we made this one of our stops for a couple of days to explore the town and these beautiful houses of worship. We stayed in a downtown hotel and walked in all directions to take pictures. We also found a train museum here that we enjoyed.

We were blessed with wonderful weather for our February road trip.
I hope you continue to enjoy our road trip. :)

All good things must come to an end and that includes visits with our number one son and family in Virginia. Due to the nature of his job, I'm not publishing pictures of the family, but I can say that we had a wonderful time with them. We enjoyed watching our granddaughters on the silks (acrobatics and dance combined), lunch with the family, and a reception where our son works.
Above is our Hampton Inn that we passed one last time before heading home. We had gone up the street to get a car wash to get a layer of road salt off of our car.
