Over the Hills We Go
Last Saturday, we drove a couple of hours away to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I realized right before we left that I'd forgotten to charge my camera battery, and of course it started flashing almost as soon as we arrived. But luckily, I managed to get some good shots before it quit.
It was gorgeous out, and the views down into the valley were breathtaking! I'm not really a fan of heights, but oddly enough, it didn't bother me at all to be looking down at tiny houses in the distance. I only got a bit nervous once when I climbed on top of a wall to get a better shot; the wind was whipping all around me. I made Peter hold onto me because I felt like I might get blown off the wall and go tumbling down the mountain! Actually, I'm not sure if I "made" him or he just did it automatically. Probably the latter. :)
Virginia is such a beautiful state, and there's a lot more I'd like to see. Hopefully, we can take some more weekend trips soon!
