The beauty of the Old Dominion

Cooled off a bit today – highs in the high 70’s, compared to the mid 90’s the day before. And the trail was quite a bit easier.

Lots of nice seeds

Hickory

Walnut

Another fruit, the Persimmon


Yum – tastes like an apricot


Nice leaves



And flowers


And tree bark

White Oak


Tulip poplar

Sassafras (I didn’t know it could grow into a large tree!)

And a few more sights along the way

Passed under interstate 66


Good thing I like Virginia, because there are 522 miles of it on the AT!!
