A Family Trip Over the Mountain

A couple of years ago, we started a tradition of family day trips on summer Fridays--my official day off from work. I found that if I stayed home I ended up working, studying, emailing, etc.

Last Friday, our family took a trip Westward over the mountain. We hiked Humpback Rocks on the Skyline Drive and walked though the Appalachian farm display. Llewellyn bought "Living with Chickens" in the park bookshop to know better how to care for our brood.

We then drove over to the Cheese Shop in Stuarts Draft. You have to love this little Mennonite owned store with all its unique goods and natural foods. I also like the Scripture sign outside the business. You see these signs all over the little town. Quite a different culture over in this area.

We then stopped in at the P. Buckley Moss Museum, which I did not realize was free to visit. It was a good family day.

Jeff, that's a nice tradition and a nice choice last week - my old "stomping grounds" for a quarter of a century. Joan and I have been to all those places, and the Cheese Shop was a client when it first started in the basement of Amos and Anna Beiler.
I just set this up today, and I hope I did it correctly. I may need a little technical blogging advise.
