Head for the hills






I love the mountains. Ozarks, Smokies, Appalachians, Rockies, you name it -- if there are hills, I am happy. That's why we decided to spend a few days hiking this week. I needed to literally head for the hills. Here are a few of the pictures I took while my sons and I were on an "adventure." We "discovered" a graveyard, an old homesite, a century-old barn and a 80-year-old outhouse. You will never guess what their favorite was.

And one of these photos will be my next painting.

What is it with little boys and potty humor??? Little man is not even two yet, and it has already started -- he cracks himself up every time he has gas in the bath tub!

Those pictures are beautiful!!! It looks like you had a good week for hiking. :)

Looks like a trip to Cade's Cove possibly? Man, I miss the Knoxville area already. . .

Glad you had a great week away from the computer. I'm jealous of the hiking time you got. I could never avoid technology that long while I was at UT.

Thanks for the pictures there Marshall. I know that there was definitely some nice areas where you were at. It is great you got to get out with the "boys" and get some some "Quality Time" with them.

Wish I could have been packed away in the suitcase! The pictures were beautiful. Could hike for days in that setting! Thanks for sharing.

The pictures are beautiful! We went to Branson, Missouri for Thanksgiving 2 years ago and enjoyed the mountain views there too.

Beautiful pictures...you should open a flickr account-it's free! (Being a Ramsey, I assume that would be a requirement)

Heh.

THe last thing I want to do is bore you with family photos. This is one of those cases when less is more.
