Glade Creek Grist Mill at Babcock State Park in West Virginia

We took a driving loop in West Virginia specifically to see this mill. It is one of the most photographed places in the state.

Picture the shot below in fall. That is the picture that hung on our walls for many years until humidity warped it and I finally let it go. I had no idea where the commercially produced picture was taken until I saw an ad for the park and instantly recognized it.

This was upstream on the other side of the bridge. Our son's comment was that it looked "trouty."

This was a surprise: truly a sign of the times.

The purpose of this old stone building was not clear, but I loved the way it was incorporated into the stone wall.
