scenic - west virginia trip

Last week end we took a trip to West Virginia to visit my daughter and her family.
The leaves were just beginning to change and it was rainy.   Nice pleasant drive for us both.

Beautiful mountain views from around this area

A community along the Greenbrier river in Greenbrier county and Monroe county (where my daughter lives).
Entrance to the Greenbrier that we will tour next trip.

Located just outside the town of White Sulphur Springs in Greenbrier West Virginia.

Hi Betsy,
I really love looking at your photos of WV. I was born and raised in Charleston, WV and my Mom and Dad had a farm in Roncevert, WV, just a little past Lewisburg. My Grandmother lived there too and she retired from the Greenbrier after 45 years of service. I have wonderful memories of hanging around the Greenbrier and riding with my Dad to pick her up from work. After retirement my hubs and I moved to Ocean Isle Beach, NC, but my heart will always be in West Virginia.

Thanks for sharing.
