Road trip to Seneca Rocks WV

Got a late start because we had to wait for the pharmacy to open...getting older has stopped being fun. Leaving at 10:30 smacked us up against a weather front and we hit the rain just as we entered Gainesville requiring us to don our rain gear. Remembering the peek I took at the weather map earlier, we bailed on our plan to ride Rte 211 and stayed on Rte 29 to get south of the rain as quick as we could. By the time we got to Culpeper, it looked like we were going to stay dry.
Turning west on Rte 33, we crossed the Skyline Drive and the weather was beautiful on the mountain top. It was cool, the temp immediately dropped 10 degrees, not humid, and the sky was crystal blue. One of those experiences that confirms the rightness of riding motorcycles. Alas, it was short lived: as we came down the mountain, the temp went back up, the humidity started to rise, and the realization that it's the end of June came back. Ah well...
Stopped for lunch in Harrisonburg. Will get back on 33 west into WV and then turn north on Rte 55 towards the cabin.
