I am finally back in town and frantically doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, and recovering from my Labor Day mountain jaunt. So check back tomorrow night to hear about that girl with RA who got tricked into hiking over 6 miles in one weekend and did not die but who had a really hard time hiding contempt for the person who suggested said hike during the last mile. And also, enjoy some pictures that I worked awfully hard to get. Because in spite of how ticked off I was at the whole 6 mile thing, I was also totally geeking out at how beautiful Western NC is and how lucky I am to have grown up/moved back here.
