We returned this evening from our trip to the mountains of Virginia. This was one of the most relaxing vacations I've had in years. We really took it easy, save for the fact that my hobby is climbing mountains and walking down into gorges to look at waterfalls.
I'll write more tomorrow. In the meantime, here's one of the last photos I took today, at the summit of Rocky Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the middle of a very severe ice storm. Luckily, my truck has four-wheel drive and I was wearing yak-trax.
