150 milesThere are so many interesting little towns to be found on the back roads of Virginia.
Just down the road from Mineral is the community of Cuckoo. I was hoping to get a photo of something like "Cuckoo Rescue Department" - but no such luck. My mind filled with all kinds of possibilities, but had to settle for the city limit sign. Small place...not many Cuckonian residents...
This is Apple Grove, a wide place in the road south of Cuckoo. I like the old painted signs on the brick buildings.
Continued south past Interstate 64 near Gum Spring. Past Goochland and Maidens, but just before Crozier we passed a large Virginia State Corrections Facility -- Saw no hitchhikers though.
Note the price of gasoline…before Katrina and Rita hit the Gulf Coast.
