Thursday May 22, 2014-Dixie Caverns Campground, Salem VA

We didn't do anything today but rest after the long drive yesterday. I got some pictures downloaded that we took on the trip that I'll share with you. I've got to give Stella the credit for most of the pictures, as I was busy driving.

The first thing in the morning, we had to wave goodbye to Dave and Nancy, who are going to a state park in Tennessee to visit relatives nearby. 

 The beautiful dome of the state capitol in Charleston West Virginia. Since we were driving, it was difficult to get a good photo.

 The Appalachian Mountains are pretty.

 The biggest grade that we ran into was a 5%, not too bad.

 Pretty but hazy mountains.

 The roads were excellent for the most park. We had freeways all the way, so we made good time and got great fuel mileage of over 11 MPG.

 Not much chance of a clearance problem here!

 One of two tunnels that we went through.

 At last, our destination. We haven't gone through the caverns yet but will before we leave. 

Home sweet home for a couple of weeks! As you can see, there is plenty of room in the pull thru space for our entire rig. The tall trees surrounding the park make satellite reception impossible, but they have good cable and great wifi in the park.

We will get out and explore tomorrow and if there is anything interesting, I'll let you know.

So long.
