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.
