Some highlights from 2009…

Spring Wildflowers

OK, I’ll man up and admit it. I’m a guy who likes wildflowers. Highlights include Virginia bluebells (pictured above), yellow lady slippers, bloodroot, and spring beauties. Some of the best photos are now available from qoop. All wildflower pictures are accessible by name on the right panel of this page.

Parade of Black Bears

The 4th of July parade of black bears was my wildlife highlight of the year.

Hiking

We got in some good hiking trips last year. Our first hike up Strickler Knob with the McDonalds was a great hike. Strickler Knob is a really nice hike, not too far from the DC area.

Farther away, we also really enjoyed hiking Mt Rogers from Grayson Highlands State Park. I still need to upload and post the pictures from that trip. Look for that in the coming week(s).

Weather

I’ve started blogging more often about the weather here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Highlights from last year include the October snow event and the December 19th snowstorm, which dumped 21″ of snow (pictured above).
