I did a writing workshop and reading at the 18th annual Allegheny Echoes Bluegrass Music Summer Workshops and heard really good banjo and fiddle and guitar and all the rest of it. I worked at a special camp for young women from three West Virginia Counties called High Rocks: what great girls!
And I gave a talk on my old home girl Pearl S. Buck. Well, she was born in West Virginia anyhow. The town of Hillsboro had a festival with a tractor parade. The view down in that valley is just stupendous:
So I learned a lot about parts of West Virginia I hadn't seen-- would love to go back soon for the hiking and biking on former railroad right-of-ways. And stay at the excellent Old Clark Inn Bed and Breakfast in Marlinton!
