I have always wanted to climb Yonah, but after Blood Mountain, I was like, ‘Woof. Maybe I’m not ready for challenging hikes.’ Then election day came and Jen and I decided to drive up there. I would NOT have enjoyed taking this shit on solo! It is a very steep, boulder-filled forest trail, lots of […]
Beautiful in every season!
This week was TENSE. I’m relieved Trump was not re-elected but with some personal stuff going on, I found myself more confused and restless than usual. It’s a pandemic mood, but I really had to get the hell out of my house and peep some fall leaves. I’m glad I finally checked out the Sourwood […]
I am so glad to live in a town that loves Halloween as much as I do! Of course, this was a quiet, pandemic Halloween but I love how many houses/yard decorated for the holiday, encouraged by Flagpole’s decorated yard contest. These were my favorites on Boo-levard James n Jen posing in front of Alicia […]
My favorite month of the year has passed but I will be holding onto to spooky season for as long as possible. I was so psyched to be a part of Flicker’s Halloween art show alongside so many cool local artists. Flicker is my favorite bar in town. I’ve popped in but I miss hanging […]
Looks like the election day asteroid will miss us but Amber and I made some cute space cats and flying saucers anyway. This is part of Flagpole’s Cruise Down Spooky Street. We had a great time creating this. Thanks to our workplace, TSAV, for letting us plant this alien invasion on the front lawn! Unfortunately, […]
I love that we have seen a sunrise and now a sunset atop two graffitied mountains together. There is a frankly terrifying road leading up to the summit, with no pulloffs until you’re almost at the top. Then there are some serious stairs up to the observation deck. But the 360 degree view of the […]
No injuries, chaos or near death experiences on our return to North Carolina! Just peak fall foliage, mountains, waterfalls, and a wealth of food n alcohol. Us n the Wall, Bugle witch fingers Graveyard Fields Horse camp! Camp feast! Chicken jalapeno hot dogs, salmon dip, berries, fancy cheeses, local bread and roasted veggies Schoolhouse Falls. […]
Our sixth and final cave. I love how different all of these caves were! This one was located in a zoo, which I know is NOT cool but, man, I couldn’t resist the chance to pet a sleepy kangaroo! Bonus wallaby!
Ah, another pretty window cave opening. This was really different from the other caves we saw. It’s gotten flooded so many formations are covered in mud. The tour guide told us it’ll be a beautiful cave in a few thousand years. Hahaaa. It was very dark and we went in with flashlights- the lights are […]
