Sorry, state's closed. The sign out front should've told you.

After several years of laying aside the time-tested "Wild and Wonderful" slogan in favor of the cringeworthy, smacks-of-desperation "Open for Business", West Virginia has returned to its proper branding. Kudos to the fine WV'ians who voted on this referendum. The Mountaineers have spoken.

Moral: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I look forward to seeing the IMPROVED signage upon emerging from the East River Mountain Tunnel on our next visit. (Dammit, we're just halfway there -- next February can't get here soon enough!!)

Ciao for niao.
