Split Rock Lighthouse

Just below the lighthouse you get a nice view through the split at the end of the point. Great paddling destination from Whallon’s Bay.

Lots of great summer activities in the area.  Keep up with the events in the Lake Champlain region.

Summer flowers

The white flowers of early June have given way to the pink ones.  This thimbleberry caught my attention this morning.  The petals look like tissue paper.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday my daughter and I spent hiking in Zion National Park.  Zion was as majestic as we imagined.  It was nice to see paintbrushes for the first time in years. No spring wildflowers here yet so we didn’t miss anything at home.

Nice day on trail.

Best wishes to everyone for an adventurous but safe 2013.  It doesn’t take more than a step outside the door to appreciate simple sights.  Many of the prettiest things in life take place every day.

Thanksgiving all year long
