Sometimes I wish I lived here.
It is beautiful, with the trees, rivers, rocks, mountains. Years ago, John Denver endeared it to me with his song…. Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River…
So I was surprised to discover that lyrics from “Country Roads” did not make it on the official state motto. Someday I’ll take a picture and document it as true, but for now you’ll have to trust me! Just imagine driving down a country highway, with trees shading the road, and seeing the sign:
“Welcome to West Virginia: Open for Business!”
What were they thinking?!?
