Country Roads Take Me Home To The Place I Belong....

WV Trip 011i
Hey Mountain Mommas! Sorry, I know I keep doing this.... up and disappearing for weeks or months at a time.... but I had to go on a last minute road trip to West Virginia....
I didn't really get a chance to take too many pics.... there was a pretty bad snow storm on my way down, so I had to keep both hands on the wheel for most of the 7 hour drive.... oh yeah, and my camera died too.... fortunately, I fixed my camera, but I never really had time to take pics.... towards the end of my stay the weather cleared up and on my way home I snapped a few more shots for your viewing pleasure.... I think that's a cemetery in the foreground......

a river.....
purdy....WV Trip 052i
so long West Virginia, hello Pennsylvania.....getting closer to Canada.... hello New York State....
The US-Canada Border on the Peace Bridge.....
We's in Canada!Where the heck am I? Why is it so foggy?...
Sure is purdy though.....WV Trip 075i
Is that what I think it is?....
I think it is.... It's Niagara Falls....WV Trip 084i
Okay, I didn't really get lost in all the fog, I just thought I'd drive by the Falls before I headed home since I haven't seen them in quite some time.... of course I didn't stop to take better pics.... too cheap to pay for $10 parking just to take a couple of shots I've taken a zillion times.... I hope you can appreciate my drive by shots nonetheless....

Well, I'm glad to be back home, but I'm hoping I'll be able to go back to West Virginia again.... life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze....

You got me singing with your post title. :)

Welcome back! Glad you were safe back home. Judging in your pics, the weather didn't look nice at all.

Take me to Niagara Falls next time. lol. Valentine's day is near, Kuya Angelo. Who's you date and what are your plans? ;)

I love that song Country Road...it takes me take about 30 years...lol.

Hey, Angelo, if you have to take sudden trips and disappear from Blogland, you're forgiven as long as you post photos like you've done...heheh.

Good to see you back and give that rascal Nermal a head scritch from me and purrs from the girls.

That one shot of Niagara Falls thru the trees looks eerie.


Because I'm always a passenger, I love road trips! Napakanta din ako ng 'almost heaven, west virginia..' when we passed by there going to Florida. Ang ganda naman talaga ng countryside.

I'm always glad to 'hear' from you in your blog!

You take care now...and prrrrrrrs to Nermal from pretty Bella.

Angelo said...

Mel: Yahoo you're first hehe... Thanks Mel, ya the weather was pretty bad when I was there. It's pretty hilly over there too, so driving was treacherous.

I would gladly take you to Niagara Falls, we'll go on the boat that goes right up to it :) No plans for Valentine's day yet %D

Puss-in-Boots Hey Robyn, it's an awesome song isn't it :) Thanks, and Nermal says purrrr....

Gina: Hi Gina, great to hear from you too, wassup? Nermal says purrr to Bella :)

Thanks for the joyride Angelo ;), I've enjoyed it a lot ! The nature is really surprising and yet beautiful sometimes depressing :( !

We have the Mistral (a violent wind coming from the North) almost everyday and it's worse than having snow around !

Angelo said...

Haze: You're welcome Haze. It's been pretty windy over here too. Scary and dangerous. Stay safe.

dodong flores said...

Likewise here. I'm also have a tight schedule between blogging and working.

These are nice sceneries here, Angelo. I like the very first photo in this post.

I like the transition of the series from summer-like scene to the winter scene.

I hope you had a blast on Valentines Day...

Limoeg said...

Angelo said...

Dodong Flores: Thanks Dodong, I hope you and your wife had a great V-day!

Limoeg: Thanks.
