Just back from vacation (I wrote the last several posts before I left and set them to auto-post). This summer was so crazy that I never booked any big adventure (like last summer in Newfoundland), so I did a road trip instead, which ended up being about 1600 miles (no wonder I'm tired today!). I visited my father, brother, and his family on the eastern shore of Maryland, and then headed down to see my sister in Asheville, NC. She showed me around Asheville, we also went mountain biking in Bent Creek park, and paddled an easy section of the French Broad river:
I stopped in West Virginia on the way back and checked out the New River gorge:
And I did a bit more mountain biking before I drove the 500+ miles back yesterday:
More photos here. I got back late last night and am trying to get caught up, classes start Wednesday!
