I finally made a start (and finish) in the 2019 North Carolina Cyclocross season.

102719podC

After a lot of overnight rain, the course in Boone was muddy again!

I had fun, didn’t race well, fell a couple of times, but it was great to be back on the start line this weekend!

102719podD

After the race, I explored for fall colors

The light wasn’t great, so I went for a hike

Jen’s husband brought her Key Lime Pie from Lewis BBQ in Austin, TX and she shared half with me, it was very good, even after being mushed on the flight.

Another day in the Jefferson National Forest and the Falls of Dismal

072419podB

We had the place to ourselves, we hiked up the creek, explored the rocks and I swam around to see if I could jump from the top (I couldn’t) This is a great spot on a warm day to swim and picnic!

The afternoon was spent packing up camp to move further west, getting stuck behind an accident and waiting for Lifeflight (which circled and left) setting up a new camp, and visiting High Knob Lookout Tower for the sunset.

I always tell my students, when photographing a sunrise or sunset, turn around and photograph what is being illuminated by the light!

A quick trip to Carolina Beach for Mother’s Day camping. This is as empty as I have ever seen Freeman Park, it was so nice!

Baby’s first beach trip, she wasn’t happy about sand.

051219podA

But was happier if held.

Yardzee – Yahtzee on steroids.
