Life without internet…

… means I don’t post for a month. Interesting how dependent we become upon internet. We’ve been without the net since our neighbors moved out August 10th or so. I felt so disconnected, not knowing what was going on in the world, or with friends. While we’ve been reconnected now since Monday, I haven’t had a chance to update since then.

A recent point of interest and fun… We spent our anniversary in Asheville, NC. What gorgeous country it is up there. I think we’ll return once the leaves have begun to change.

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway.


Our hike, the first day in the wilderness.


Our campsite.


A pause in the ascent.


Shining Rock: beautiful white quartz.



Our descent. Switchbacks like these made me whimper.


Another beautiful view. The rain was coming.


Enamored by the beauty of creation.


Wild blueberries. We were watching for bears.



The walk up to Biltmore.



Gorgeous architecture.


Gardens designed by the man who also designed Central Park.



A stop at the North Carolina Arboretum with a special focus on the Bonsai exhibit.


It was a great to escape to the mountains.
