HIKING in PISGAH NATIONAL FOREST


My Carolinas adventure should have actually started with my day of hiking in the Pisgah National Forest. I flew there as a guest of a friend I had not seen in 49 years, (class mate from Santa Fe High School class of 1960.) Few words can describe the beauty of this area. Just a few photos taken with my new Sony DSC-H10 will give you an idea of what I mean. I'm told the heat and mosquitoes can be a problem this time of the year. I was fortunate to have been there in a light drizzle. which kept the the little vermites away and the temperature cool. Enough!

My Southern Adventure

click on the photo for more on my FLICKR.

I recently had the pleasure of joining three fellow class mates from my High School, class of 1960. Yes that's a long time ago. For the most part most of us had not seen each other since that year but after the initial Hi,s and Hello,s, it seemed that we had just seen each other last week. We all met at the beach house of one of the class mates which was located on Isle of Palm, South Carolina. A first for me. More about it later as I un-jumble my over loaded brain synapses. A Rocky Mountain, "Mountain Man" can be easily overwhelmed by Southern Beauty's and Southern Cuisine. Never the less it is good to be back home. Darn, I miss my friends and the Creamy Grits with Shrimp that are to die for.
