well i have been through west virgina, but not that particular highway. it does look like most of the roads i WAS ON, and that mountainous. he may have even fallen asleep. looked like early morning when you took the photo, so it probably happend in the "wee hours"........??
19 is fun. i'm thinking you are talking that really big downslope where the view over the country side is really pretty. wv virginia had to have been drunk when they made there roads cause all 77, 79, and 19 do is up and down and curves on top of curves on a downgrade over a bridge.
speaking of 19, after you cross the really long bridge (nb) there is a scenic over look that is really cool. i stopped last time thru there and got some really cool pics.
another reason for me to not team is what I seen happen at the T/A in Terrell, Texas last week.
I was sliding my axles so I could go reweigh and hard a huge "crunch". I damn near fell out of the truck in fear that someone drove up behind me while I was moving backwards, LOL.
I get out and look over on the next row of trucks, just in front of all the idle-air spaces, and see that a big crane truck just tried to do a turnaround and put the crane right through the top bunk of someones truck. Weird stuff.
