No. Not like Colorado Rocky Mountain “high”, but a few feet above ground level 🙂 On Sunday, I went with a group on a hike in Crowder’s Mountain State Park. I’d been there a few times before. It was a great day to be out and about, walking through the woods and up the mountain. There were 10 of us, 8 women, 2 men. According to what I could find online, the elevation change from the visitor’s center to the…

As seen on the greenway in Marion, NC. Lots of foot traffic in these parts! Great location to advertise. Low rates! 🙂 BTW, we did not attend. Not all advertising works on everyone! 🙂

Also, as a bonus, since Pedro lives in nearby San Jose, I got to have dinner with him and his wife…

Well, there are not geese nor ganders in this picture, but it is always worth it, for me, to have a gander at this retention pond. On this particular morning, I startled a few ducks that were swimming about. They didn’t fly far, just to the other side of the pond, but I appreciated their flight. 🙂
