We knew in minutes the sun would sink beneath the horizon before we went much further so I took one last shot while we could see it dropping in the sky.
On our way up to Morgantown I had seen one of these state markers off to the side of the road. I hadn't noticed it before so had planned to stop on the way back. In just a few minutes I recognized the spot and Hubby pulled off the divided highway onto a two lane road. This is the marker above. We still had a little daylight so Hubby said let's drive a couple of miles up this way. As we pulled away from the sign we noticed the road was unmarked. As we turned the bend in front of us I had to have him pull over.
This big old gate the size of well, Texas, was to our right. I had needed a fence or gate for the Good Fences meme this week and immediately knew this was perfect for my first entry and appropriate we were headed to Tollgate. The clover reminds me of my 4-H days many long years ago. Not sure where the road went. The photo has been lightened because it was almost dark up this country road. The light spot on the pole on the left is the Jeep's headlight. We drove a little further and saw what had been an old country store and a bit further a log cabin. We will definitely go back at a later date when we have some light to explore and take photos.
