Mountains and Maternity!

June 30, 2011 at 1:00 am 6 comments

Last weekend, Ryan and I traveled to Blacksburg, Virginia for a baby shower thrown by my Southwestern Virginian friends. At 33 weeks, we have an awful lot to celebrate and be excited about. All that joy was compounded on Sunday with a reunion with the mountains!

Before heading back home, Ryan and I took a detour to the one of the most photographed points on the Appalachian Trail, McAfee’s Knob (as seen on the Virginia Appalachian Trail License Plate). We ascended 1200 feet and had a round trip of about 7.5 miles. Amazingly enough, even though McAfee’s Knob is a very popular hike, when Ryan and I arrived at the top, we had it all to ourselves!

A happy moment from a happy day from a very happy time in my life!
