Country Lane

MailboxesWest Virginia side roads typically start off paved and then narrow. Before long, they turn to gravel and eventually just become hard-packed dirt as they climb over ridges and snake along narrow valleys.  This road did exactly that climbing along a ridge line and becoming narrower.  The mailboxes stand at the end of a country lane just waiting for the mail carrier to appear.
