Yesterday was National Take A Hike Day here. I took this opportunity for do just over 9.6 miles here in Richmond. I hope you enjoy the shots!
Over the weekend, my husband and I went to Shenandoah National Park and did the Whiteoak Canyon and Cedar Run Loop. The trail was just shy of nine miles and had 2,365′ of elevation gain.

There were several steep sectionsContinue reading “Shenandoah Waterfall Hike”

Here are some photos I have taken recently of the “less” pretty things around Richmond. I am hoping to show the beauty in some of these traditionally “undesirable” subjects. Some of the animals pictured here are actually cute in my eyes, but I know they are not to other people. I know that reptiles willContinue reading ““Less” Pretty Things”
