Hiking and camping in Red River Gorge, Daniel Boone Forest, Kentucky, October 21-23, 2020.
This was a 48-mile hike along the Appalachian Trail in Tennessee. This section of the trail offers beautiful mountain views, streams, and waterfalls. There are several mountains to climb. I am 66 years old, and this hike from May 31st to June 4th was difficult for me. It was also great fun.
This is my experience of finding my dream job which was working from home.
We walk the 1 1/4 mile trail through Old Stone Fort State Park. The trail follows the Big Duck River and the Little Duck River. There are several beautiful waterfalls along the way.

My wife and I traveled two hours south of our Middle Tennessee home to visit Stone Door in South Cumberland State Park.
The Athens Greece Parthenon was built in the 5th century BC. It took 10 years to complete. The Nashville Tennessee Parthenon is the world's only full-scale Parthenon replica and was built in the 1920s. It also took 10 years to complete.
The United States Army gave me a lifetime of experience and training. I enlisted when I was 24 years old, and my life was forever changed. Looking back on life, I am grateful for it all. The Doxology is a fitting expression of praise: "Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow..."
Travel is often interesting, exhausting, and sometimes brings unexpected events. This is my experience of a middle of the night hotel emergency.
Two examples of odd occurrences surrounding the death of pets in my family.
We had two beagles that lived with us for many years. We loved them both, but one of them could be a bit mean if we did not do things exactly how she wanted them done.
This is an example of how my dry sense of humor caused me grief. I was joking about being haunted by chicken souls, and I was the only one who knew that I was joking.
I always enjoyed reading books about running. I had run four half marathons, but I never thought about running a full marathon. Until a comment from a stranger changed my thinking and my life.
This is my experience of moving into a newly constructed house. This was our first newly built home, and I expected that everything would be perfect. I found that my expectations were unrealistic. This is how I learned to not sweat the small stuff.
Jackson Falls is just off of the Natchez Trace Parkway which is a drive through beautiful country. Stillhouse Hollow Falls is a 25.5-mile drive from Jackson Falls and is near Mount Pleasant, Tennessee.
This is day 2 of our backpacking hike to Red River Gorge in Kentucky. October 24th 2018. We traversed the unofficial trail to Hanson's Point. Incredible views.
This is my experience of a recurring nightmare that came true.
The first of two October nights of hiking and camping at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. This was my first experience of sleeping in a hammock.
This is a collection of odd events that have occurred in our home since we built it in 1999. Did we possibly disturb the spirits of those buried in the Civil War era cemetery behind our house?
A two night hike in Red River Gorge in Eastern Kentucky. Mother Nature at her best. Hiking, camping, sightseeing, and relaxing in the beauty and sounds of nature. There is nothing like sitting on a bluff and watching the early morning fog as it pours into the valley below. Such beauty!
