We had rain for a while, but by the time we got to THE GAP, the weather was much nicer, and the scenery was gorgeous!
I love looking across the valley from the parking lot at THE GAP. But, unfortunately, I wasn’t thinking at the right time and missed a picture of THE GAP itself. For those of you who aren’t acquainted with this cut in the mountains” it is a tourist center that is also a Vietnam War Memorial. And it is a beautiful, peaceful place.
We saw lots of nice fall foliage as we went, but many of my pictures did not turn out. We got to Ohio on Tuesday evening, and Wednesday and Thursday were filled to the brim with things that needed doing. We even got to have supper with Youngest Son on Thursday night, but I never had my camera out the whole time. I should have been documenting some health related data, but I didn’t even do that. We left Ohio after dark on Thursday night. It was snowing a little bit. We drove to Morgantown, got a motel for the night, then got on our way around nine on Friday morning. Imagine our surprise to drive into Grantsville and find this:
It was snowing right along when I took this picture through the windshield of our van.
We drove out of the snow and into sunshine eventually. We saw some wonderful scenery along the way home, too.
The miles clipped away, and we finally came into familiar territory. What a good feeling it was to come around the corner at Abbott’s Pond.
And so we came on down the road and around the corner, and our own foliage wasn’t too shabby, either:
And then there was our familiar fence and driveway, and we were home!
As we rounded the edge of our driveway, I was overwhelmed with a feeling of praise to our Heavenly Father for the Traveling Mercies, the enabling He granted us to deal with things in Ohio, and for the many, many miles driven together that were so comfortable and happy. We have so much to be grateful for in this happy season.
