Historic Abingdon Virginia

We live just outside of a beautiful old town. And I finally got around to taking pictures of it. This is Abingdon, Virginia. A city founded in 1778. A city where George and Martha Washington stayed in and passed through. A city where at least one of the buildings (still being used) was made into a hospital when the Civil War was in progress.

Is it not beautiful? Leave a comment with how old your town is.

High In The Sky

I flew from Tennessee to Idaho last week, and so, spent a considerable amount of time in the air. Which is not a problem for someone who immensely enjoys the sky, as I do.  I couldn’t help but take pictures of the beauty around and below me as the view was absolutely stunning. I now take to the web to share some of them with you all.

I had a really good time in Idaho (I went there for a writing conference, more about that to come).

Have you been on a plane? Comment how far the farthest you’ve ever flown.

Until next time,

Hot Air Balloons

This day last year, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that Phoenix has hot air ballon days(?)… and they were launched right by us and we could walk a few hundred feet to view them up close. Of course I brought the camera, so I decided to share some of the photos with you all. It was a little overcast that day, but it was still a great sight to see!

Yes. It is true, he did really have a great fall… and I watched it.

 

Which was your favorite?

There was a fire here (at GNP) last year that burned down a lot a trees, but it was all still very beautiful, and the water was amazingly blue! And there was snow, no more than five feet from our car. 😉

Have you been to Glacier?

Montana.

 

We’ve been in Montana for about a month now, and I thought it was hightime to share the beauty of this state. So here are a few pictures I took a week (or two) ago.
