They also visited Roswell, New Mexico; White Sands National Park in NM; the Petrified Forest in Arizona; and the Monument Rocks (or Chalk Pyramids) a large group of chalk formations, in Oakley, Kansas. “It was worth the dusty drive,” they said.

The Post travels to West Virginia


_n-post-travels-west-virginia-reedfcSteve and Judy Reed, of Cedar Springs, traveled to Summerville, West Virginia over Labor Day weekend with their grandson, Landon Prater, 11, and Steve’s sister, Sandy Martin, to move her back home. While there they visited some of the sites around the area, including the Summerville Reservoir, the Gauley River National Recreation Area, and the famous New River Gorge and New River Gorge Bridge, which is also part of the National Park Service.

The New River Gorge Bridge is the longest steel span in the western hemisphere and the third highest in the United States. Previous to the bridge being built in 1977, it took 40 minutes to get across the gorge in the Appalachian Mountains, and the only way was by traveling a pretty scary long, narrow, winding road down one side and back up the other. The Reeds took that road, but don’t think they would like to do it again! It now takes less than a minute to get across the gorge with the bridge.

The Drier family in Montana.

The Post traveled to Lo Lo Hot Springs Montana over spring break with the Drier family—Andy, Valerie, and their sons, Joseph, age 10, and Benjamin, age 8. They were there visiting with family.

“It was a first plane trip with our boys and they loved it,” said Valerie. “We did lots of hikes and snowmobiled on top of mountains. Such a beautiful area. We then traveled to Glacier for an overnight stay at a beautiful log home. A lot of Glacier was st

ill closed but we still did a nice hike in the park and got some gorgeous photos. We ended our trip by backpacking, snowshoeing up a mountain, and building our own snow fort with a bed of pine needle branches to sleep on. We slept outdoors and luckily had great weather, with a view of the stars that we probably won’t see again. What an adventure!”
Thanks so much to Andy, Valerie, and the boys, for taking us along!
