5:30 pm. I’m glad to find Dove’s Store, a reassuring last shot from a long day looping thru ‘Highland’ counties in West Virginia: Pendleton, Hardy, Hampshire, Mineral, Grant, and back. Often featured here, ‘Highland’ counties encompass and sustain the South Branch of the Potomac River. And provide generously for those with an appetite for riding county roads.
But, I’m still smarting, since morning. An acute smart lingering long after my public humiliation by a tail-thrashing, hoof-splashing, testosterone-charged juvenile Angus bully defending his indifferent heifers, they clearly more interested in a sip of creek water, against my apparent interest in the same. For the rest of the story, check here.
