The river winds around the Cabinet Mountains and through the Cabinet Gorge. It's a modern marvel that a two-lane highway, water generated power lines and train tracks carrying controversial coal fit through the narrow gorge.
Uneven, the faded paved road swoops like a swallow trail, making it an exciting ride. As the Hub says, I hold the "chicken handle" mounted above my door often. He likes driving the curvaceous road ad I imagine him pretending to be a race car driver. I'm distracted by the scenery which is stunning beyond words and perfect for Wordless Wednesday (linking up with Abracabadra).
Photos are all my own. Note that I used a highly technical filter known as the "windshield."
