Road Trip: Day Two

We woke up in Elkins, West Virginia, quite refreshed and ready to start the road trip over, since we were quite ready to call it quits the night before (see previous post).

Right in front of the hotel were these two old trucks seemingly being left to rot in the middle of a field. The light was streaming through the windows and they were perfect. More shots in my flickr.

Day two took us to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory for a pretty awesome tour. For a twenty-five mile radius around the observatory, no one is allowed to broadcast anything. The astronomers regularly have to hunt out sources of static in their area, like electric blankets.

The rest of the day was spent getting on down to the New River Gorge. We drove through some incredibly beautiful scenery but there was hardly anywhere to pull over and snap photos, so we largely did not.
