we found the most beautiful park in wheeling, west virginia.
i'm not sure what exactly all it entails but here is what we found:
+ oglebay mansion and gardens
+ a mini-zoo
+ driving range / golf course / country club
+ several public [?] pools
+ a huge cemetary
+ and a resort
we decided to walk around the grounds of the mansion.
reading historic markers about the oglebay family owning this beautiful home
and land was fascinating. we made several comments about how people once lived
where we were standing. something about this place made that realization more "real."
i can't wait to explore every other inch of this place.
