West Virginia is one of those states that doesn't get much attention here on DailyKos, and when it does, it's almost always in a poor light. I thought it would be nice to do something about that.
You see, there's more to West Virginia than coal trains, mountaintop mining, Joe Manchin or Bible Belt poor folk who vote against their own self interests. It really is a gorgeous state. I have driven many a back road through West Virginia, and let me tell you...there are few places in this big old country of ours that can match its beauty.
Here is the West Virginia I have seen in my travels, in a better light.
