Fall 2020 we took a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Finally drove past Craggy Gardens, we always stop and hike it, and ended up at Mount Mitchell. What a drive! Beautiful colors, great overlooks, amazing blue sky, it was the perfect day. This is about 2 hours of GoPro 8 video edited down to 5 minutes. It was tough to choose. Enjoy!!

We also hiked Mount Mitchell and that will be in another video soon!! Here is a quick video we took at the top.

Check out our Instagram Video at the top of Mt. Mitchell

Aurora Around America

The Bear Days of Summer

Our third week of the Smoky Mountains brought some new adventures and we revisited previous failures. We discuss two great hikes Rhododendron and Chimney Tops. The kids swim in a rapid and have a blast. Aurora talks about keeping in touch with friends on the road and her letter writing clubs. We play around with our Gopro8 and have some fun in the pool. Finally there is a bear in the campground, and that provided some midday entertainment.

Hiking, Horses & Hot Springs, Oh My!!

Hiking, Horses & Hot Springs, Oh My!!

On week 4 of Aurora Around America we discuss Hiking, Horses and Hot Springs. On our way east from TX to TN we stopped in Hot Springs, AR. We had never been, it was a good distance to break up the 1000 mile drive and there is a Chicago connection. We hoped it wasn't shut down because of COVID; It was more than we liked but less than it could have been. We had a birthday to celebrate, we were anxious to hike the mountains and happy to be back on the road and traveling again.
