While participating in The Ultimate Blog Challenge I am giving more a sneak peak into my life and more personal things than my usual marketing or business posts.  

Today, I was given the prompt of sharing around a photo.  I have a hard time sharing just one photo so I have a few all around the same place near my home.  

I live in the foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains.  I am a little bias but, it is a beautiful place to live.  

My husband and I were hiking The Peaks of Otter which is one of the more popular hikes in our area.  It's about 2 miles up a very steep, rocky incline.  This lovely deer in the photo above actually followed me for quite some time.  I got the impression she was a very well fed ‘wild' deer.  She unfortunately did not have much fear of humans.  

We live in a lovely place to visit!!  We are just a few hours from Washington DC.  We are about 1 1/2 hours from Charlottesville.  If you enjoy visiting historical places or hiking in the beautiful BlueRidge mountains.  We have gentle hikes and challenging hikes for all experiences.  

Some of the Historical places near us:

  • Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest
  • Thomas Jefferson's Monticello (in Charlottesville, VA)
  • Appomattox Battle Fields where our Country United to end The Civil War
  • D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va
  • Colonial Williamsburg (about 3 1/2 hours away)

If you are ever interested in visiting our area we would love to invite you to check out our AirBnB 

I hope you enjoyed these photos and a little bit about where I live.  

Have you hiked in the Appalachians?

Do you enjoy visiting historical places?  What are some of your favorites?  I have visited quit a few growing up and while Homeschooling my kids.  I love the President's home and beautiful Colonial Williamsburg!!

      I have hiked the Northern part of the Appalachian trail, not the southern part in the actual Appalachian mountains! (I know! Backwards!) Your photos are beautiful! I am grateful you shared them – your AirBnB looks great!

        Thank you!! It's a beautiful place to live. I use think they were a decent size mountains until i visited Colorado now they look like hills. Beautiful hills none the less.

      I love visiting historical sites. I've traveled quite a bit through the US. The charcoal ovens in Nevada are amazing to visit. Crazy that it was all built by hand. I've lived in a haunted house in Galveston Texas for 2 weeks. That was both interesting and nerve racking at times.

      These are beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing them with us!

        Oh my gosh I would love to stay in a haunted house!!! You're in charge of booking places when the team travels. It's just gets better and better!! Can't wait to see what you book next!!
