Fall Fling

This weekend marks the 28th annual Wise Fall Fling. The event in my circle of friends is known as the "Flung" - Pictures can be seen here. I spent Saturday at the car wash while my father picked free grapes at our local winery Mountain Rose Vineyards. The vineyard and winery are located on land that was once stripped for coal. Some of the wines carry names that are closely related to coal or timber. The names Pardee Red, and Banner White all come from coal. Banner and Pardee are two of the richest coal seams in my area. There is also Splashdam White. Splashdam camp can be seen here. A little history about Splashdam:

In 1909, the Yellow Poplar Lumber Company built a concrete Splashdam for the purpose of moving logs through the Breaks area. At one time, this structure was the world's largest concrete splashdam. The structure currently supports a highway bridge. (LINK)

I have sampled the wines and they are quite good. They are also very original, as they should be. People here in the Coalfields are original. I thank God everyday that I live here with the greatest people in the world.
