Got to visit a couple waterfalls in South Carolina this past Sunday! Chau Ram Park was at capacity when we arrived but our wait was only a few minutes. Staff was great. Dammit if we could NOT find SC’s Blue Hole Falls. The Google Maps destination didn’t look right and we went down a couple […]
I wish I could spend every hot day of summer in the water. These falls are only 12′ high but also 100′ wide, with a deep, refreshing swimming hole on the Chauga River. We got in at the hottest part of the afternoon and got out right before a thunderstorm broke. The perfect summer daytrip. […]
June 20, 2020 To honor the end of spring and first day of summer, we headed to Currahee to catch the sunrise. I’ve been lucky to catch the sunrise here three times now- each time has been different and wonderful. Our walk started in the dark, under a blanket of crisp stars. Over the hour, […]
May 2018 St Helena Island with my mom and Ifetayo (I’ve known her since childhood but this was my first time seeing her again as an adult)! This was a lovely weekend. We also passed thru Charleston and the Sheldon Church ruins too.
2007 My mom helped me settle in my first week living in Seattle and we took daytrips to Mount Rainier and the Hoh Rainforest (I didn’t drive then). I only made it back to each of those parks one more time while I lived there but they’ve been on my mind a lot recently. I […]
Thank you, Alonzo Auto Parts & Wrecker Service and Crispy Printz for this fence of painted buses. It is an art oasis and I’m excited to see how it evolves next year.
I spent Memorial Day weekend in the North Georgia mountains and it was SO NICE. Saturday, I hiked Blood Mountain with friends. Sunday and Monday I went to a small cabin by myself in Sautee Nacoochee. It’s the best decision I’ve made while social distancing and I’m currently trying to see if I can book […]
I was a bit nervous when I was invited to hike Blood Mountain. It’s definitely a workout, but well-worth it for the view at the top. What a treat to sit on those rocks under the sun, eating peach galette and watching the lizards dart around. Here’s hoping I can psych myself up to hike […]
Feburary 29, 2020. Leap year! The most stunning herald of spring. 50 acres of fields, valleys, and hillsides dotted with sunshine. My heart felt so full being surrounded by 20 million daffodils- a truly special place.
2017, 2018, 2019. Every time I go, I hike down to the waterfalls (it’s always a dry, hot day and the falls are merely a trickle), then back up to the the overlook. I keep ending up here alone, and there really is a healing effect in letting your head empty out over the 1000′ […]
