After we see all of the houses, buildings and the small rivers then we will start going into the middle part of West Virginia. That is where most of the little town areas and houses are.
One of my favorite parts of the middle of West Virginia is Cross Lanes. That is where most of my family lives. It's a small area where everybody knows each other. I think this is the friendly part of this dazzling country.
Of course, on Sunday mornings we all have to go to church. When we are done with the morning service, I get to go to my aunt's house and sit on the porch and wave at random people - just to be nice.
Then we go a little further and you meet the woods. When I was at a shop, I looked outside the window and saw people hunting with their bright neon orange vests on, and they were in camouflage so the animals couldn't see them.
As you can see, West Virginia is a beautiful place to visit. It is the most beautiful and friendliest place on earth. If you are one of those people that like visiting beautiful places, bird watching and love the snow, then West Virginia is a place for you.
West Virginia will always be the most beautiful place I have been. I practically call it home.
