Tygart Lake State Park

Liz and I left Chesapeake this morning. We got onto Rout 50 headed for West Virginia. The scenery is beautiful for the most part. People have a different way of life around here for sure. We saw one house what was made of 5 trailors welded together. The hills make for an interesting drive and are really steep in some places. There are signs all over the road that show busted trucks rolling down hills. We stopped only when we really had to. I guess we've seen Deliverance too many times. None of them seem that bad, but the did stare us down when we stopped in an Exxon to pee and get a snack.
I wonder how much I can get for Liz as a mountain bride.
We planned to stay the night in Clarksburg and on the way stopped in Grafton to see the Tygart Lake State Park.
Tygart Lake was more beautiful mountain scenery. We stopped at the lodge to get some pictures of the blue lake. There were a lot of boats on the lake, but we didn't see anyone swimming. We walked down the trail to the beach area and got some good shots.
