Since I had to work this weekend, I couldn’t travel too far for the Fourth Of July holiday. And Pittsburgh being Pittsburgh (well, its location I mean), the options were limited but somehow I stumbled across the Stonewall Resort in West Virginia. It’s located within Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park and its outdoor setting can’t be beat. I had some qualms with the resort itself which I’ll write about in separate post. But on this little getaway I got to visit the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (a fascinating yet utterly creepy place), did a wine tasting at a local winery (I sampled one that truly tasted like a Tootsie Roll which for me was awesome), and just enjoyed beautiful weather and a serene setting. Hope everyone else had a Happy Fourth of July!
