The view from my perch on the mountain

In a small town

I thought I’d take y’all along on a trip into town to pick Laura up from work.


As usual, I took the long way ‘round.


Petunia Road




High Bridge Road




West Lee Highway


4th & Main, downtown Wytheville.


Cove Road


4th & Commonwealth heading into town with Sand Mountain in the background.


Best sammiches in town!


Our not so little anymore baby girl.

Hope y’all enjoyed the ride.

  1. Awesome pics. What a beautiful place you live in. I especially like the red shed with the cow sitting beside it, and the very settler-looking pic of the two-storey log cabin house! Jx

    Hey Chip had to come over for a look. Love all your work over here as well. My photos are piling up just no time or inspiration to blog them. I hate to say my last 2 blogs are old ones from spaces. Shit just happens here to keep me from this computer. Half of today was spent trying to heard a bunches of cows back here that broke our gates and our 4 calfs went with them. Now its not easy to get the calfs cut out so we bring the whole herd back. I wear my river shoes and a skirt cause if the cows cross the creek I hitch up my skirt and head right in. After 3 hours we finally got our 4 guys back into the pasture and all the gates tied closed. This is not done on horse by on foot. At least I always get a great workout for the day. Well have a great week. Hugs Carrie

  5. Chip, I read EVERYTHING! I couldn’t get enough. It was more fun than anything I’ve done in ages and I’m dying of envy. Remember I told you that I lived in Lynchburg for a couple of years and this reminded me of that. I miss the country and the mountains now more than I realized. Every picture told it’s own story even without typed words, and every photo was just wonderful. I mean, who could not love a road called Petunia?
    I’m certain the photo of the black and white dog is yours — Sam? He’s a beauty! I love the name Sam. That’s my Maine Coon cat’s name. Solid name isn’t it.
    You and Frankie are so darn lucky to be in Wytheville (with-vul). Grand, grand place to be a raise a family 😀
