Len wrapped up Saturday (Day 11) in West Virginia through Time Station 46 in Grafton and Time Station 47 in Keyser. Hopecam thanks Elizabeth Hajost, Kelly Argy and James & Kelley Smith for their support. The team has been hitting the laundromat regularly, but this bike rack is doing double duty as a clothesline!
From the students at the Flint Hill School:
The population of Grafton is 5,481 people. Mother’s Day originated here in 1908 when Anna Jarvis wanted to start a memorial to her mother. It’s the home of Frank Gatski, who was a pro-football Hall of Famer for the Cleveland Browns. Tygart Lake and Valley Falls State Park are two tourist destinations and the average rainfall is 40 inches per year.
Keyser is home to 5,300 people and is the home of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. A favorite tourist destination is Crusin’ Treats, an ice cream parlor. Nearby Savage River State Forest is a great place to visit as is the annual strawberry festival. The local citizens support the West Virginia Mountaineers.
