Virginia is lucky to have a total of 34 State Parks. Each is gorgeous and unique in it’s very own way. The State Parks sponsor a program called Trail Quest. When you visit 1, 5, 10, 20 and then all the state parks you get a special pin. So I’m going to tackle the challenge of visiting all the 34 state parks and then blogging about them here. I’ve actually already visited quite a few of them, but several I’d like to revisit because I didn’t really get
to wander around them as much as I would have liked. Others…well, I’ve had my fill on…even if they are amazing places…maybe some time away and we’ll go visit in a year or so. They beauty of Virginia is that when you get sick of one place, you’re never too far from another place. I use to live near First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach and was there at least once a week and sometimes more, it was a great quick escape from life. But…after a while, I need a change of scenery, now that I live in the mountains I’m near several state parks…some I’ve visited some I haven’t. So…fasten your seltbelts, my friends, cause it’s road trip time!
2012…34 State Parks…can it be done?
So, yes, I realize this is a day late, but finals kinda took precedence over blogging…sad I know. So…I think one of my upcoming missions is figuring out how to make this table…How very cool is this?
This is a photo my good friend, Sage took of me about 2 years ago. (Is that right?) We were heading to Devil’s Marbleyard outside of Lexington to do a backpacking trip. It was suppose to start snowing late Saturday afternoon. So Friday, on the way to the tent I just stayed in my flip flops…well, sadly the weather man was highly mistaken…it started snowing Friday night. Saturday we woke up to very cold, wet, heavy snow…and yes, my toe nails are purple…very ironic considering my feet were turning purple before I made it to my boots. (Yes, I do hike in boots…on occasion…like when it snows…sometimes.)
