For the second straight evening, strong thunderstorms passed over northern West Virginia. Since the rivers had not yet recovered from Saturday's downpour, we found the Big Sandy to be a big mess.
After an eventful weekend, Linds and I decided to do a little exploring on Monday, the 4th of July. We both enjoy driving aimlessy around the countryside, and since I needed to find a new place to fish, it seemed like the perfect idea.
We headed east on 68 and made our way into Bruceton Mills. After stopping at a barn sale, a hardware store, a kayak rental and a diner, we finally made it down to Big Sandy Creek to do 30 minutes of fishing.
Shortly after we left, the thunderstorms rolled-in again and gave Morgantown another bath. Our timing was pretty perfect, as was our little trip into the West Virginia countryside.
