NOT on a summer schedule
The blog sincerely regrets missing a few days of posting. Things started to go wrong when Susan realized that Friday was a Wake Forest holiday, and decided that Thursday was therefore functionally Friday, and therefore, wine should be drunk on Thursday...fortunately, a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains on Saturday brought some needed fresh air, perspective, and several hundred new photos. The trouble with photographing the mountains is that they are SO BLUE that they look artificially colored. Jon spent a lot of time photographing a tree growing sinuously around an enormous boulder near the Linn Cove Viaduct (the very last piece of the parkway to be completed - not until 1987 - and an important element in the movie Goodbye Solo). Later in the hike we climbed the same boulder (Jon boldly, Susan with trepidation) for an even better views of travelers on the parkway.
