My parents live about an hour from the Blue Ridge mountains, near the picturesque Shenandoah Valley in VA. We said goodbye to them, and #3, who is staying for 2 weeks, and headed west today. One thing we wanted to do was stop by Bridgewater College, where I spent my freshman and sophomore years. Great memories.
After Bridgewater we drove farther south in order to visit Southern Virginia University, which is a privately owned LDS university with about 800 students. Geo knew the provost, so after a short visit we walked around campus, exploring. This could be a possibility in the future.
Here are a few shots from our West Virginia stretch. Tomorrow we will push on to Kansas City.
