On Whiteface Mountain

September 23, 2012


Ever hear of Whiteface Mountain? It’s in the Adirondack Mountain range. It’s also where the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics were held. I am madly in love with Whiteface Mountain.

Anybody remember that old folk song? I grew up with folk songs. While my peers were rocking to Jimi Hendrix or Donny Osmond, I was listening to Elizabeth Cotten, Burl Ives, Pete Seeger, and James Taylor.

Turn Right. No… The Other Right

March 6, 2012


I love my GPS. I really do. But some days…. POW, right in the kisser! I used to wrangle with paper maps. And once I opened one of those things, I could NEVER fold it back up. NEVER. It was like the Rubik’s Cube to me. HOW THE HECK DO YOU DO THIS, AGAIN?!?! In […]
