Grant County / Mineral County line - Rt 50

After neglecting this thread for the past few months because of work issues, I'm back. We've still got some markers waiting to be discovered and immortalized, so let's get started.

I found 3 recently replaced/refurbished markers on a trip out to Harper's Ferry. Here's the first one.

Located on Rt 50 at the Grant Co / Mineral Co line, about 5 miles east of Mt. Storm and about 15 miles west of Keyser. Lots of great riding and great scenery in these counties!

Same Marker - Side #2, eastbound entering Mineral Co.

Directly across the road from where I took the second photo is this garage. Hmmm, as Bugs would say, "I must have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque."


I am going to work on getting the spreadsheet updated this week. Thanks for your patience.
