09/08/11 WV Weekend Day 2


225 miles

Beautiful weather for day two until we were on our way back to the motel and ended up in a bit of rain. Not disappointing though since we were kind of surrounded by low-lying clouds again.

We rode up Spruce Knob, which is the highest point in West Virginia. Then we headed over to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (Green Bank Telescope) where we had lunch, watched the presentation, and went on the tour.

We left for home early the following morning because of tropical storm Lee’s heavy rainfall forecasts. Total mileage for the trip was 633.
