We arrived in Charleston, West Virginia a bit past 5 p.m. A perfect time to catch the sun glimmering on the dome of the state Capitol building. This, like the Minnesota Capitol, is a Cass Gilbert design. And what a setting for a Capitol. Of the nearly forty that we have seen, this one offers the best view. The picture from close up is interesting.
But go across the Kanawha River and take a look.
And while you are on that side, go up into the hills and follow Louden Drive. This is a scenic drive that anyone will love.
