Since I had a day off, and since for once the weather wasn't bad (10-knot quartering crosswind, but I'll take it), I popped up for a quick flight this afternoon.
Here's a shot looking over the quarries north of the new Route 9 Connector just west of the WV/VA state line. I'm thinking that the straight, flat section of the connector there might make a great emergency strip should I ever have trouble when I'm out this way. Good to keep in mind in the otherwise hilly area.
Here's a cute little house down in the John Brown Farm development. I'll bet that there's Bushmills there.
Another glamour shot of the Shenandoah River with the Blue Ridge behind it. Over that ridge lies Northern Virginia and the end of civilization as we West Virginians know it.
And here's back home again. I'm setting up for a few touch-and-go landings.
Just a short 1.4 hour hop, but damn I feel good. It's been too long since my last flight thanks to a new work schedule, and winter weather's not helping at all.
