Oh, the beautiful Skyline Dr. We had a wonderful opportunity Oct. 24, 2009 to drive and hike up along Skyline Dr. We went with mom and Kara and had a great morning/afternoon. Skyline Dr. is situated in the Shenandoah Mts. and is oh so beautiful.We really enjoyed the colors. My favorite colors to see as we drove through the trees, were the reds. It was amazing got see the goodness of God evident in nature. We hiked down to the bottom of a waterfall and back up...it was a steep, but short hike and very beautiful.We hiked down to the bottom of a waterfall and back up...it was a steep, but short hike and very beautiful.

I feel that I have dropped off the face of the world wide web. My presence seems to be limited to merely checking my email. Dara is encouraging me to post more on our blog. Last week end we went to Baltimore to help celebrate Denise's successful run in the Baltimore marathon. We arrived after she had finished the run, but went down to spend an evening along the harbor. We went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory. We had some great food there. I was satisfied. Afterwards we took a look at the two-story Barns and Noble book store located next to the Hard Rock Cafe. I spent some birthday money on two Russian history books. I am slowly building up a library of what I love to study most, that is, Russian and and all things related. I am a bit of a Russophile I guess. That is a subject for another post or another blog entirely. We left Baltimore happy and full from dinner. Dara even gave her marathon exhausted sister a piggyback ride.
