View of I81 from Days Inn
My husband and I spent several days on the road in Virginia going from cheap motel to cheap motel and enjoying the vistas and beauty of the western part of the state. There was a view impairing haze during the entire trip and the ninety to one hundred degree temps set in for the last part of the trip. Still we reveled in the yet preserved beauty. We hope another generation can enjoy it before big box stores and cell phone towers take over. We took the back roads but sometimes found our best buy in a motel room on the interstate. Here is an example of why we took the back roads.
