A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Take Me Home…

As John Denver well knew, West Virginia has an abundance of country roads.  I explored this one on this rainy Monday morning, and somehow managed to make a photograph of it without ruining my camera gear.

Note to self:  Need to work on umbrella-holding technique while changing lenses

Tesla Road, Braxton County, WV

  3. YOU’VE sold me on West Virginia, John Denver didn’t. Denver wasn’t even his real last name yet he didn’t even have a song title with the name of the state of his adopted name. How insincere! PLUS, he was born in Roswell, New Mexico and I intend to write an exposé on that one day soon! (Just kidding around!)

    As for your umbrella problem, I have been known to carry an unbrella with a non-hook straight handle so I can stuff it down the back of my shirt when I need two hands.

    • Although John Denver’s signature song “County Roads” mentions West Virginia prominently several times, the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River he refers to in the song are mostly located in the state of Virginia (although to his credit those feature do make a brief pass through the eastern panhandle of the state). Geographical quibbles notwithstanding, his anthem is revered by West Virginians on a level surpassed only by gospel standards like “Amazing Grace”.
