Clear Fork for web

Southern West Virginia: Hard as the rocks from which its hewn, beautiful as the natural forces that soothe.

I’m working on a piece of creative non-fiction about southern West Virginia.  It’s a different world. More on that another day.

I was in the area yesterday working on a project. Here’s what I encountered.

Above: Clear Fork Creek, deep in Raleigh County.
Below: A railroad trestle far above the road.  It may be part of a future recreational rail trail.
Bottom: A barn clinging to life in the town of Artie.
