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… Continue Reading “Temptation of a Watery Fantasy: Skinny Dip Falls”

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… Continue Reading “Sunday Night Check-In: Weird-Ass Weather”

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… Continue Reading “Vicarious Adventures Through Reading”

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… Continue Reading “Sunday Night Check-In: Football, Running and Spiders”

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… Continue Reading “The Gift: Boone Fork Trail”

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… Continue Reading “Morning Sunshine: McPolin Farm Nature Trail”

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… Continue Reading “Sunday Night Check-In: I’m Beat”

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… Continue Reading “Sunday Night Check-In: Mid-City, Hiking and Reindeer Games”

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… Continue Reading “An Arkansas Adventure – Part 2”
