Cave Mountain Lake, Virginia




1st off - has any one noticed lately that there are a lot more "No-Reply Commentors" on your blog? i have. it seems weird to me? wonder what is going on with that, google maybe having issues or??! 

"Cave Mountain Lake", Virginia is a gorgeous area. they do have a campground. we did not stay. just checked it out for future notices in case we are in the area & wished to stay there in the future ...they have a beach, picnic area & hiking trails. i am only guessing but have you ever noticed that a great deal of these places were made by the "Civilian Conservation Corps", smart men. they last & are just amazing quality.

a nice getaway for sure. Beth ( :

After yesterday's freezing cold temperatures, I'd be tempted to light a fire in that fireplace.

Looks like an inviting place, and a great spot for just peaceful writing.

Very pretty place. Betsy's blog had bridges built by CCC today! You get to visit such scenic places; thanks for sharing with us. Happy Thanksgiving with love, me
I'd love to see the James River in person. So much Civil War history there. The cabin looks like one along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hey, love your new profile pic. Is it new or did I finally notice it??

neat looking place. :)

if folks use the google+ i.d. for their blog, google won't allow their email to be used and it goes to 'no-reply' crap. apparently they want you to use google+ to correspond. not gonna happen for me. :)

I liked the trails which looked so inviting for walkers. The CCC work does always seem to be very well done and has lasted many years.

That does look like a wonderful place to camp. We have a state park near us built by the CCC -- the buildings and bridges are beautiful.

The area does look quite inviting.

I have noticed the odd person whose profile is set so private that I'll never find out if they blog themselves.

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend ...so I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
VERY SAD FACE. : (
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
