Traveling WV

I thought I'd post some fun pictures we took on our vacation.

Get off the interstate and ride around and it's no telling what you'll see.

Santa Claus welcomed us to this neat place,

and so did the ranger of Jellystone Park.

Even Paul Bunyan beckons you to come and take a closer look.

In the middle of all this was a beautiful pond. . .

and flowers. I saw these flowers everywhere, do any of you know the name of them? I think they are so pretty.

We had creatures flying above us . . .

and these beautiful alpacas observing us. I think they are so cute!

A dinosaur roamed the grounds. . .

and so did a shark.

The Simpsons enjoyed riding the roller coaster. How Homer and his family found their way here, I'll never know.

Here I am below the surfer dude. This shows just how big these statues are.

This guy will hold your groceries for you while you look around. Service with a smile!

We had fun!
Just goes to show, you never know what you'll come upon when you are traveling the roads of WV.


  1. Interesting views. I'll bet that was a surprise you weren't expecting.
    I love alpacas. Maybe one day I'll have some on the farm.
    I think those flowers are called "Red Hot Poker".

  2. I think the flowers are just what Twisted Fencepost said they were. Wow! Those statues are something else. I've never seen them and will have to ask Sister S if she's ever seen them. What are they near? xxoo

  3. Looks like fun.
    We never traveled much but when we did, Dad never wanted to take interstate. Said it was more interesting on the other roads.

  4. what a treat you recieved, we love traveling the back roads, it is so much fun, you never what what you will find.
    I like Paul best and the Alpacas

  5. Give me a backroad anytime versus interstates! The flowers are beauties aren't they? I'd love to travel WV's backroads!

  6. I love those flowers, too. I planted three of them last year, but for some reason they never came back.

  7. I've heard them called red hot poker and also torch flower. I like them too.

    Where on earth did you go to see all those statues? I don't think I've ever seen that place, but it certainly looks like something my grandkids--and I--would like!

  8. Looks like a fun vacation! I love the flowers, too.

  9. Sounds like a fun time to me! I can't get my husband to get off the Interstate. :( blessings, marlene

  10. Janet,
    It's my Blogiversary. Stop by when you get a chance. xxoo

  11. Wow those statues are BIG and neat. I have red hot pokers growing in my yard. They are very easy flowers to have-and come back every summer.

  12. Janet,

    I had some catching up to do. I enjoyed the photos of your vacation and the ones of Harper's Ferry. I'd love to visit there. I'm a real history buff.

    Adorable grasshopper chair. I'd never seen one before, but we have lots of plaintain growing around here.

    Enjoy your week, my friend.
