Trip to the mountains

We went to Paw Paw, West Virginia on Monday. We took the long way, all through the mountains in western Maryland. We tried to take the smaller roads to get there and got caught in a loop called Mountain Road. According to the map, it went south and straight to Paw Paw. However, when WE came to the end of it, we were back where we had started! lol It was okay, tho, as it goes right through a Wildlife Management Area and I have never been to or through one of those. Now, don't laugh, but I was expecting to see wildlife everywhere...herds of deer, maybe a bear or know, wildlife. What I did finally see was a huge hawk perched in a tree. I tried to get a picture but the sound of the truck backing up scared it away. One thing you need to know about Mountain Road if you ever plan on going there, it is truly a mountain road. Just ruts in the dirt. Sometimes deep ruts. A couple of times we were shaken so bad our heads hit the roof of the truck. It was quite an adventure! Now, finally, we found the C& O Canal in Paw Paw. There was this huge dead tree. I asked my hubby to stand next to it so I could take a pic. Well, typical of hubby, he has to climb ON the dead tree. All I could picture was it breaking and him falling in the dirty water:)

On the way to the canal we stopped at a fast food place. It was around lunch time. I looked up and saw all these pigeons. Ya think they were waiting for lunch?

I asked humorous hubby to take a picture of the birds while I was in the shop. See who he took a picture of first?

We stopped at this overlook called Town Hill. Isn't it beautiful!!

This is a view of Sidling Hill from the lookout!

It was a beautiful day and I am so glad we went. Hardly any walking, just driving. I am still not able to walk for very long. Sigh......some day. Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!
