I spent the last few days in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, without internet or much even much cell coverage.
I climbed up Crabtree Falls Trail and jogged some of the Appalachian Trail as well. My legs are sore, but it was a good, arduous birthday adventure.
Today we visited Thomas Jefferson's house - my second visit. Then we toured James Monroe's place nearby - my first.
We did not visit Washington's house or Madison's house, which aren't all that far.
Virginia was the residence
Of many early presidents.
