Breaks Interstate Park

If you have read my blog for a while you will know how much I enjoy spending time with my family! Last month we took a day trip to the Civil War Reenactment, today we took a day trip to Breaks Interstate Park. A very lovely place on the Kentucky/Virginia border. It is very pretty this time of the year because of the leaves turning colors. For some reason they did not show up that well in the photos but they were beautiful.

This was a little over 2 hours away from here, so not a bad trip! We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed spending time together.

This first photo was taken at "The Grave Of The Unknown Soldier"
A cabin in the woods...
Beautiful views...

The white in the photo below is a river, we were at about 2000ft elevation.
See the river in the photo below....
This is what we saw when we zoomed in with the camera! So that should tell you how high up that we were!
This is the little road that we were driving on...
At the end of the day we had a wonderful time. Since we were already in VA we drove on over to Grundy and ate at the Huddle House. Not a bad little trip, we spent under $100 and that included gas, food and souvenirs
Now we are home and I have to get back to the grind....doing laundry and cleaning house! :(
Have a wonderful day!!

Glad you and fam had a great day together. Boys sure are growing up. Karen, a friend of mine, was asking about you and Andrew today. She knew you when you lived in WV.
