We did another run over 80 to Haysi and then on over to Vansant. Then Patterson, Pilgrims Knob, Whitewood and over the hill to Jolo. They stole the Home of the Rocket Boys sign at the top of the hill.
Then up 83 to Paynesville. The West Virginia side is just as good as the Virginia side.
The back of this thing is the tail of a late 60s (?) Firebird. I should have gotten the other angle.
The fun stuff kind of fizzles out, and then you have to ride the crappy roads in Tazewell County.
I made Kyle suffer the indignity of riding over Clinch Mountain on VA 80 to satisfy my curiosity. He's a good sport.
There is a cool waterfall on the way over to Rich Valley.
The ride home was similar to the ride over. The Holston side of The Snake was dry and sort of sunny. From Shady Valley home, the roads were wet, and I rode through a bunch of rain.
Birthday boy caught a chipmunk ten minutes after this photo was taken. He's 15.
That's all I got. Thanks for looking.
