Ventured out to Shenandoah National Park yesterday, and I was happy to find that the trails are in excellent condition. The sky was a perfect shade of blue and the air was crisp. Below is a picture of me at Hawksbill Summit, the highest summit in the park. I'm getting photo bombed by Old Rag Mountain :-)
Took a picture here (below) of Stony Man Mountain through my binoculars. The old man is looking forward to a lush green Shenandoah Valley, soon to be here!
The sweet, tangy smell of mulch laid outside our home is the sure sign that the outdoor season has arrived. Okay, so it's suppose to snow tomorrow. Whatever, Spring is here! I saw it in the faces of the student groups I trekked through the Washington D.C. streets this past week. I look at my calendar and anticipate the memories to be made as I venture folks along the sprouting trials of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'm ready. Are you? April is afoot, the Cherry Blossom are soon to bloom, and the vistas of Shenandoah that are now barren and grey, will soon turn to rolling peaks and lush greenery of awesome! I am happy. This is what the season brings. Promises of connection and exposure , to what we all are born to appreciate... The great mother of nature.
Let's get outdoors.
Get out there and bask in the glory of what it means to be alive!
The season is about to start...
The chill of winter has begun to subside...
The dark hours of daylight savings time have past...
and, The White Crow is stretching out the wings,
unfurling the feathers,
and getting ready to soar.
