"Yes, This is in West Virginia!" We have about 3 months to admire a part of West Virginia that few know about or see. It's the landscape uncovered when Summersville Lake is lowered during winter.

A common story told about West Virginia is the folktale about how it got the nickname "West, By God, Virginia". According to the legend, a West Virginia native who was being inducted into the US Army during the First World War was repeatedly asked by his induction officer, "What part of Virginia?" And the soldier, finally getting fed up with the confusion, said "Not Virginia! West Virginia! West, by God, Virginia!". This story, whether true or not, has entered American folklore.
