  7. This is a great shot. When we went to VA several years ago for a mountain trip, I did get a lot of shots of the James River and a number of the bridges but we didn't stop along tracks for me to get good shots of them. I was pleased during the recent trip to WV that I got a lot of tracks and train shots.

    By the way, you mentioned that you used to live in the Asheville, NC area. I have a good friend in Black Mountain and growing up we spent time there since once of my father's first parishes before I was born was in Black Mountain and we'd go back and visit. My mother's from Boone, NC and the Boone/Blowing Rock area was a second home to me. So many of my mountain trips were to the northern NC mountains and valleys where I still have family but it's been fun to branch out and spend time in the VA and WV mountains and compare the differences. My mother died in 1990 but my grandmother lived to be 103 and didn't die until 2003. It's still weird to think of my grandmother not being in the same house in Boone where she lived since 1923. At the end of her life she was in a retirement home but held on to her Boone house for visits until she died. My I sure have babbled on.
