This summer lead to my first caving experience, many amazing waterfalls in Virgina, massive mountain and canyons in the south west, my first garden at the new house, and many National Parks. In fact, I attended Shenandoah, Mammoth Cave, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Death Valley. All in the past 4 months. I have seen some amazing sites with some amazing people. I hope to see several more National Parks during my travels next summer. In fact, I already have some trips in the works.
The summer is winding down here in Georgia. I had to break out my mummy pjs last night to avoid the chilly night air. Summer is officially over and much of my vacation time is officially gone.
I am able to squeeze in one last trip before the end of the year though. Ashley and I a headed to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park near the end of the month to catch some fall foliage and have a relaxing couple days hiking in the mountains. A last hurrah! of sorts.
I can always tell how good my summer was by the markings on my feet. This year they were great! It has been an eventful summer and I will miss it.
Although short lived here in Georgia, I do enjoy fall. I am looking forward to soups and roasted vegetables!
