It’s been both a social whirl and a struggle to get connectivity the last week or so. I’ve been camping with friends and had a great time, from the coast to the Blue Ridge and the edge of the Smokies. Man, it’s beautiful country here.
That’s the road north of Asheville heading into Tennessee. Some serious grades but the views and the greenery are worth it.
For a bit of contrast, here’s a trail I was on last week in South Carolina. Yes, I have finally said my farewells to that state, after spending pretty much half of 2019 so far camping in their state parks.
I also bid adieu to North Carolina, so I’m definitely working my way north now. North Carolina did leave me with one beautiful thing: lady slipper orchids in the wild. These were all over the campground last weekend and they were beautiful to behold.
I’m back at one of my happy places, writing and kayaking and hanging out in the sunshine. I could use a bit more bandwidth, but I don’t have it so this is shorter update than normal, but with some good photos 🙂
you have to find the place that brings out the human in you,
the soul in you, the love in you.
