APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS — It is surreal being back in this part of America after an almost seven year absence.

This particular part of the Appalachian Mountain range was our home before we had kids.

Like me, the place has evolved. I didn’t feel at home here before. Now I fit somehow.

We’ve smelled skunk, walked within arm’s reach of deer and travelled up and down many hills.

Below are some photos from our recent adventures.
