The drive from Columbus to DC is one I know very well. For the better part of 10 years I've gone back and forth numerous times. The road is marked with a number of visual delights along the way, one of them being Cheat Lake.
Driving east on I-68 you're given a breathtaking view of the lake. Southern view captures two mountains colliding in the distance behind the lake, while the sun's rays often beating down on the scene, providing interesting layers of contrast and textures to define the landscape. Until recently there had been two old and quite beautiful bridges in the foreground. Nearest one the smallest, and the larger bridge behind it. It was a picture perfect moment each time I drove by.
I wanted to stop, I knew I should have, and until today I never did. While I didn't pull anything dangerous like stopping on the overpass, I drove down to the lake and spent some time wandering around. Glad I did. The two old bridges have since been replaced with a simple overpass. It's not much to look at, but thankfully the lake remains quite beautiful.
