No Mountains? No Problem!

No Mountains? No Problem!

I’ve been on an extended work trip to southern Mississippi and before I came down I was a little bummed. It is an excellent time of the year for hiking in the Virginia mountains and I am missing it! But a few weekends ago I decided to stop pouting and look around. You know what I found? Mississippi is beautiful in its own right. This place took a hard hit from Katrina but they have done a great job of rebuilding….

That way she gets to watch them afterward and it’s kind of like she was there with…
