West Virginia. Ohio. Kentucky.

Did you know that the way to describe West Virginia is as a fist with the middle finger sticking up?


Do you see it? Well we were on the middle finger for a stretch. We then headed over to Ohio to check out Ohio State. In some ways I felt our trip was a BIG 10/SEC college road trip.

Here’s Ohio Stadium, designed to have features of the Coliseum.

Then it was on to Cincinnati. Home of Rogue. We enjoyed dinner down on the waterfront near the stadiums. The waterfront area was apparently recently finished for the MLB All-Star game.

In Lexington, Kentucky we checked out Rupp Arena, which is right in the center of town. A block away is the home of Mary Todd Lincoln. We arrived too late for a tour but read the brief displays in the garden.
