This trip was our last 'hoorah' before the end of the summer, and Scott and I spent a few days in West Virginia. We stayed in a lodge at the Pipestem Resort State Park. Accommodations included a restaurant, indoor and outdoor pool, game room, sauna, gift shops, a reading area, paddle boating, miniature golf, etc.
We even took a hayride around the campground area.
It was a relaxing trip as we viewed and photographed a family of deer from our 2nd story balcony and watched the sunset behind the mountain.
We also drove a short distance, around 30 minutes north, to Beckley, to visit Exhibition Coal Mine. We entered a real mine, no longer functioning, on a trolley and viewed originals and replications of the houses, a school, and other buildings on site for the coal mining families.
It was a relaxing and historical trip!
