Temptation of a Watery Fantasy: Skinny Dip Falls

Yesterday our little band of travelers bit off a big chunk of hiking. We climbed up a mountain to Looking Glass Rock. In the picture below, Looking Glass Rock is in the center. It’s rock sides plunge almost straight down to the ground, and…

Sunday Night Check-In: Weird-Ass Weather

I’ve worn a tank top all weekend. Today I wore shorts. And I was burning up. In fact, I got so hot that I started feeling a little sick. We were hiking out at Bogue Chitto State Park and had walked quickly to see…

Vicarious Adventures Through Reading

When I was in North Carolina, my hiker friends gave me a copy of Bill Bryson’s book A Walk in the Woods. I’ve known about this book for probably as many years as it’s been published. Momma loved it. She talked about it all…

Sunday Night Check-In: Football, Running and Spiders

I think I made it! I think the long, hot summer and especially July and August are in my rear view mirror. I expect there to be a couple more hot days or weeks, but I think the brutal, humid swamp-like season is o…

The Gift: Boone Fork Trail

Jacob, the barista at the Crooked Door, told me that Julian Price Park has wonderful hiking trails. I was excited because I’d had to drive to the trails earlier in the week, and I get tired of windshield time. I arrived at the park…

Aaaaahhhhhhh …. I Am a Lucky Soul

All I can say is aaaaahhhhhhhh….. Although the trip has not been trouble-free, it’s exactly what I was needing. Temps hover somewhere between 68 and 77 depending on the elevation during the day and the nights cool off to the upper 50s and lower…

Morning Sunshine: McPolin Farm Nature Trail

I had the opportunity to attend a conference for my job in in Park City UT – a city near Salt Lake City that I’ve never had the opportunity to visit. I don’t really like work conferences. Long days holed up in an over-air-conditioned…

Sunday Night Check-In: I’m Beat

This weekend was a blur. I went out to dinner with a friend in New Roads Friday night but got home pretty early. When I woke up Saturday morning, I was energized. I had an appointment with an appliance repairman in the afternoon, but…

Sunday Night Check-In: Mid-City, Hiking and Reindeer Games

I was so happy when Friday came and I had absolutely no plans for the weekend. I was going to do absolutely nothing except maybe clean my house. Well, I wanted to take some Epsom Salt baths, workout and cook, but that was the…

An Arkansas Adventure – Part 2

This is a continuation of yesterday’s blog – An Arkansas Adventure – Part I. So, when I left the story yesterday, we were in a swamp-like area on the trail, in the dark, helpless. My Dad and my brother, Terry, were driving toward each…
