Happy Easter and Belated Passover

The Senate Campaign is over, and while I did not win the day in this deep red district, it was an incredible experience! The campaign was honest about the issues that impact every single person, every single day and we did not engage in negative dialogue. I’m proud of that and also that people have told me that they are encouraged and in fact, inspired to get involved. That was one of my goals: to inspire folks to get involved in civics and government!

And NOW! I can get back into photography, travel, and the motorcycle!

Happy Easter and Belated Passover to all who celebrate, and for those who don’t, Welcome Spring (in the Northern Hemisphere!).

Covid-19 Update:  Since I picked back up on blogging, I’ve been sharing brief updates about our travels.  Rest assured, we are taking precautions.  Wearing masks, eating outdoors or take out (or in empty restaurants), and hand sanitizing.  We are doing our part to keep ourselves and others safe!

On our way back home to Virginia from South Carolina a few weeks ago, we decided to take the Blue Ridge Parkway and stop in at Mount Mitchell State Park.

At 6684 Ft, Mount Mitchell is the highest peak east of the MIssissippi River and offers incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

As we climbed in elevation, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up.

We didn’t have time to get out on the trails, but we plan to return to do some hiking another time.  Thankfully, we were able to get back on the Blue Ridge Parkway and appreciate the views along the way home.
