In My Mind's Eye
One of West Virginia's scenic byways follows U.S. Route 60 from White Sulphur Springs to the state's capitol. This hundred mile highway closely follows the pre-Revolutionary Midland Trail, and winds through the rugged Allegheny Mountains. George Washington realized the importance of the Indian trail and ordered the path widened in 1790.
