  7. The pictures are truly beautiful! Where is this, near Roanoke? Yes, everything is overgrown here as well, it is hard even finding a view to snap the sunset. We have bears, too! Well, not US, but people around us get them in their garage, and they try to come through the kitchen windows. Makes me glad we do not have a garage!

  14. That's a right smart view that is! I can hear the expression from my childhood. Great photos Tanya, a beautiful old log cabin and I bet it has a few stories to tell if only walls could speak.

  23. The Bears behind...
    Camping at YELLOWSTONE once. Learned a life-lesson. Bears came through the campground about 11PM. We were in the tent. They sniffed around and went on their way. We had taken bear precautions about food, campsite etc. The couple in a convertable at asite down the road weren't so lucky.
    In AM, it was arag top in more ways than one.

  26. I love those stone and wood cabins! There are some around here on the State Park golf course.

    I just drove from Columbus, Ohio to my dad's place in W.V. It's so wonderful here...but there are bears that come down the mountain (Cacapon Mountain) and strew your garbage all over the place if you take it out early.

    (Doesn't apply to the bear-proof garbage bins, but I've seen a bunch that seem bear-proof...until a bear comes along and proves the opposite!)

  31. What a lovely little cabin!

    Sorry I've not been commenting lately but a tendinitis (shoulder + elbow) is forcing me to stay away from the keyboard as much as possible - repeated movements of the arm is all I have to avoid...
