After leaving Mammoth Cave I spent a couple days camping in Shenandoah National Park. It was beautiful. There is something about hiking along a rushing stream, and being able to stop at waterfalls that really can't be beat. I also got to ride an awesome horse named Ginger.
It was wonderful to be back on the east coast yesterday and dip my toes into the Atlantic. I saw my favorite familiar sea weeds and lots of crab shells. Some kids on the beach nearby found a large horse shoe crab!
Driving through a wooded Connecticut road last night I saw a two deer run into the woods. This would not have been particularly remarkable except for the fact that one of them was white. A white deer! Apparently they have a low frequency of albinism... I had no idea.
