To Pocahontas State Park

When I saw the rain outside, I was tempted to stay a second night in the cheap motel, but then I felt how warm the air was and decided to ride.  I made great time along US-301 (practically an access rode for I-95)  into Petersburg, and the rain stopped.

I decided to take a chance and go to Pocahontas State Park, out in the middle of nowhere southwest of Richmond, rather than camp by the Interstate.  I had a notion that the park might have a historical connection to its namesake princess, which would have been interesting, but their only connection is that they're from Virginia.
