One For Daisy
We were so impressed to learn that our friend Daisy hiked OUR Mom's favorite mountain, Old Rag. It's called that because the mountain is very old (as are all East Coast mountains), and it has a rocky top that looks jagged and raggedy from a distance. Jagged mountains are quite unusual in Virginia. Old Rag is a wonderful hike because of its rock scrambles and wonderful views, but it is essentially loved to death. So many people! Mom only likes to go during the week, but still there are lots of people. She last went this past May when the mountain laurel was in bloom, but she and Dad didn't see Daisy there. It looked like Daisy went in the wintertime--the winds can be very cold then.
Anyway, Mom uses this photo for our computer desktop here at home. (At least she uses a photo of us at her office!) Though the date says 2005, it was actually 2006. Mom had just gotten the camera, and she said that she set the date wrong because it was very hard to see.
Daisy, this one's for you. We hope you get better from your operation in record time!
P.S. Daisy, if you post a picture of the waterfalls of White Oak Canyon, our Mom will fall over.
