A few photos from Ravenswood, W.Va.

A few things seen on this town of about 3,200 people in the Racine pool on Jan. 31, 2017.

This is the William S. Ritchie Bridge crossing the Ohio. I couldn't find a good spot to get the whole bridge in the picture. It will look better when the hills behind it are green again.

This is the bridge as seen from the Ohio approach.

What I assume is a vacant storefront in Ravenswood decorated to recall a business no longer there

And if you're going to play with a Frisbee, make sure it's a real Frisbee sold by Wham-O. Otherwise it's just a flying disc. And when you break it, throw it in the river and see how far it goes. This one made it to the West Virginia shoreline at Ravenswood, in case anyone reading this was its former owner.

I saw some other stuff there that requires historical research. It will take a little bit of time, but it will be worth it.

I wish I'd known you were in Jackson county, it would have been nice to meet up with you.

We drove along the river from Point Pleasant to Huntington yesterday. It's one of my favorite drives in WV.

I plan to be up there again this spring. I'll try to let you know when.
