soph looking for bears

Sunday was gorgeous so we woke up and decided to take to the road–we ended up on Skyline Drive and had a ball.

Sophia delighted in looking for animals of all kinds, in the picture above she was “looking for bears”.  We didn’t see one.  We did however run into this creature below as we were attempting a short hike after a lovely “fairy picnic” — needless to say we turned right around!


Thankfully Keith was ahead of us and noticed him–he was a 4foot long timber rattler!

We did also see animals of the more friendly variety…


And even of silly variety–this is from the parking lot of Dinosaur Land– a total cheesy tourist trap on 340 on the way to Skyline.  Sophia made us stop and loved it but she was satisfied with what we could see from the parking lot!
