Camp Rapidan Hike Review

Hurricane Sandy made it snow in the Shenandoah Mountains! Did you know that? Because I didn’t until we showed up to hike to Camp Rapidan.

Deer Spotting

We were going for a walk when it finally stopped raining after Hurricane Sandy and we spotted 5 deer right off the path. I couldn’t get a picture of all 5, but this is what I did get. Enjoy!

Sunday … Continue reading

(Adding the second TV to … Continue reading
