Last Saturday while exploring the Tugaloo Corridor, we turned off Lake Harwell and paddled up Longnose Creek to an opening where we had lunch by the absolutely wonderful waterfall. There is something about the light along these small waterways that is very inviting. I didn't adjust this photo very much—if any. This is life at [...]
Over the next couple of days, I'll post photos I took this weekend while canoeing on the Tugaloo Corridor. Did I say canoeing? Yes! It was so much fun that I may have found a new activity. From what I gather from college friend and registrar Kelly Vickers, this is an annual event. He led [...]
