Mount Storm Lake

Power Plant
This lake is in Grant County, West Virginia, not far from Scherr. Some locals refer to it as Lake Vepco after the power company that has since changed its name to Dominion. We reached it by driving the new highway that extends Route 55 west from Moorefield.  

The ridges here are part of the "Allegheny Front," one of the windiest places east of the Mississippi. No wonder we saw long rows of wind turbines here!

  6. The black and white adds to the drama of these photos--especially in the first one.
