    Got back from Charlottesville VA last night. Went to Monticello, and see what that town had. We took a walk on their Rivanna river trail that runs across the town beside the river. It was interesting seeing how trail maintenance was to, just keep it clear. 7e09e292b22784f31451b8717f0615fd.jpg 77b9b64d52f3f28f743f4a9a100b77e7.jpg 615c5a1474d55f208104bb516a90f552.jpg They had an old outdoor theater here that is falling into ruin of course someone is trying to make it look pretty with their graffiti, which didn't look to bad?? a78ae7f19c2967205762f3d6c0194cc9.jpg
    On the way home we hopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway for distance to see the Shenandoah valley 1953fa412e43dbb3130c182712db5d00.jpg 43ea4ea49dbe7e31aeeea0933cdf59bb.jpg We came back down by James River, so we could hit the interstate and get home before to late. 24983837f6f5edf4c711e1abde142839.jpg 02e9a861cea6b999346b4d251b5cdcad.jpg

    Now I set my hammock up in the yard in an attempt to catch a few ZZZ's before work tonight 5a2017975a9410c091adf13c33cd8be2.jpg Sshhhh I'm sleeping.

    Awesome pics. Those trails look very nice. I grew up in South Carolina and frequently backpacked in North Carolina. The Blue Ridge Parkway is amazing and should be on everyone's list of places to visit. Thanks for the pictures Roy.

    Oh my gosh, the look down the Shenandoah valley is just heart tugging! So beautiful, oh my gosh, just so beautiful! If nothing else in my life, I have got to get out there to visit this country. Trouble is everytime you turn around, there is something fantastic waiting for you to check out. I'd have to be there a month (or 12) at least. I love American History.

    Those paths look incredibly well maintained. Here if it's dirt and it wiggles and no trees laying over the path...it's a trail! Ha ha! Well, there might be a tree laying over it!
