Flag vest diplomacy

West Virginia

West Virginia: Morgantown, West Virginia University, Jerry West Statue

June 23, 2013

West Virginia makes me think Appalachia, coal mines, and windy roads.

My visit to the state for the vest photo was on a solo road trip to a wedding of a business school classmate in Ithaca, New York. I visited the campus of West Virginia University and got a photo in front of the Jerry West statue. West, of course, is apparently the man whose silhouette appears on the logo of the NBA.

The only other time I recall being through the state was on another road trip, either to somewhere on the east coast for college visits or on a drive to or from Duke.

WV is a state I'd like to get to know a bit better.
