I-79 drive: Charleston, WV to Washington, PA
With the freedom of no meetings on the horizon this week, this afternoon I decided to make an impromptu trip home (to my parent's house) in Washington, PA. Ever since we moved from Charleston to Washington in 1982, I-79 has been familiar territory to our family, traveled on no less than ten times per year (round trip) by all of us collectively. I make the trip up and back at least four times a year. We've all memorized its exits and landmarks, and at least for me it's so familiar it doesn't seem like I'm even on a trip.
Here's a mini photo series on the drive north on I-79 Sunday afternoon, with a short diversion along Oil Creek from Burnsville to Roanoke.
