Finally we got back on a "road with numbers" by passing under the clearly marked "No What?" underpass (thanks West Virginia, for your FANTASTIC invisible road signs) and continued on our loosely defined course. We headed down towards Charlottesville, taking a variety of scenic and secondary roads with great views of the mountains and trees. It's easy to forget how many stars come out at night, and we were suitably amazed by the night sky away from all the city lights.
So for now, we say adieu, cozy in our cheap motel room in Charlottesville. Tomorrow will hold (we hope) a trip to Monticello, a visit with Stuart (Julia's high school friend at UVA), and some exploration of the Appalachian Trail.
p.s. Dinosaur Land was closed. Awww rats.
