Wild and Wonderful

Crossing into West Virginia, the welcome sign greeted me to "Wild and Wonderful West Virginia". I didn't find out what was so wild and wonderful but loved the sign.While driving through on the interstate, I noticed a golden dome gleaming in the sun. I took the next exit and went to investigate. The building is the State Capital, the tallest building in W.V.
This is the beautiful dome that I spotted from the interstate.

Cap, you should take those shots again on your way to see the girls. The dome is probably covered in white stuff now!
Safe trip and hugs to all

I have a great affection for WV. As a kid in n Binghamton, NY, I could pick up WWVA in Wheeling late at night. And the trip from Albany, NY to Charlotte, NC hits the midway point in WV.

Love the dome.

Perhaps the sign was put there just so you could use it for ABC Wednesday. (:0)

The photo of the bridge (and the bridge it self)was at least enticing enough, and a bit of gold is always handy :-)

Great shot of the dome! I've never been to West Virginia, and I certainly didn't realize it was "wild and wonderful":) Hope you are enjoying your trip.

Lovely photos on your last post--the snow makes everything magical, doesn't it? Wishing you Happy Holidays!

When I think of West Virginia I think of Mountain Mammas and Country Roads thanks to Johm Denver! Both are rather wild!
Happy ABC Wednesday.
May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

Fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving gifts are all the buzzwords in a Christmas setting. Make your Christmas a one to cherish for years!
