Hui-chen and I rented a red Dodge Charger in North Carolina and headed to the panhandle area of West Virginia. We had a meeting with a customer and then headed to my favorite destination: Cabela’s!
The weather was spectacular! I took many of my famous Photos From The Car© during the 8 hour trip.
I took this shot out the side window. I’ve done so many car photos that I didn’t even bother looking through the viewfinder.
The “road” going up to the right is a place where runaway trucks can safely bring their rigs to a stop, should the brakes fail on a downgrade. We passed many such places on the steep hill sections.
The roads were kinda sparse. Any idea why? I practically lived on the road in the US many years ago, and these days there are definitely less cars on the road than in past years.
But the scenery was great and the trip was a lot of fun (except for that bad section of road that I navigated us through).
It isn’t every day that you get to see one of these (along the Ohio river).
We took this bridge from the Ohio side of the river, back into West Virginia, to our final destination for the evening.
The next day we headed down to Wheeling and to the famous store there:
This place is huge!
You step through the doors and are presented this this view.
They have more stuffed animals than many people see in a lifetime!
Some of the animals are alive too. Cabela’s has a huge aquarium. Here we see a diver cleaning the tank.
This bull moose looked so real that I felt strange being so close to him. I’ve tracked and photographed many moose in New Hampshire and this is closer than I would ever get to a living moose!
The African animal display was even more impressive!
We had a blast trying on clothes and looking at the interesting things in Cabela’s. As most of you know I have a long history of wearing Cabela’s clothing!
In 2 hours time, we had barely scratched the surface and it was time to leave! If you have the chance to visit one of the Cabela’s stores, we highly recommend it!
