just west of the middle of nowhere, virginia

we stopped in washington, virginia (the first washington of them all). we hope to spend a day or two at the inn at little washington--- perhaps next year when i have graduated from grad school.
we camped at shenandoah national park (home of the blue ridge mountains)--- much like last year, except this time it was better. life just gets better, right?
we roasted hot dogs over the fire for dinner. so delicious. i'm glad i held out and didn't give in to getting a hot dog stand hot dog.
this is why we don't let any old person take our photo... the guy started moving the camera before the photo was done being taken.
all in all, it was a great time. we love being outdoors and being a little secluded every once in a while. we do hope for the days when we can camp more than just the weekend--- but then again it is nice to sleep in our own bed too.

Maybe there was a slight earthquake under the old person's feet. That happens a lot with old people.

What's with all this talk about old people. By the way, did you feel the 5.6 quake under your feet last week.
As for the hotdog, you can keep it. I'll eat those luscious looking berries. [when it's lush, how do you get luscious, oh well] The photos are wonderful.
