See this photo?
We had a hankering to go out on the blue ridge parkway, see some beautiful views and walk a few trails.
Please note the second word in the description here. LEISURELY.
No where on here does it say “precarious stone steps descending into oblivion which you must walk back UP after going DOWN!”
Maybe there just wasn’t room on the sign for small print.
But we went anyway – because we are adventurous that way.
Dappled shade from leafy treetops!
Rhododendrons growing wild all around.
Crossing streams rushing toward the falls
Photo ops…man, I need to something about these chunky arms!
And yes, stairs…LOTS of stairs! But it was so worth it:
And further down:
This was my first time doing videos with the new camera, I need to remember to always do them sideways so they fill the whole screen on youtube..sorry about that!
And then we hiked back up!
And rested a bit along the way!
What an awesome place to be, to see, to enjoy!
30 minute leisurely hike? Well – it was worth it!
Just can’t get enough of these mountains!
What fun can we get up to today??
After we were done, we rushed back to the cabin – I had a live radio interview with Pat Sloan for American Patchwork and Quilting! Did you listen? If not, here are the links:

Give it a listen! And let me know your thoughts on what we talked about – the time went so fast, it was so good to hear Pat’s voice!
