Hiking the Appalachia


My niece has spent the last week hiking Dahlonega, the southern gateway to Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia. It embraces Amicalola Falls State Park and includes Anna Ruby Falls and Trackrock Gap. Springer Mountain which is the southern terminus of the Appalachian National scenic trail, and onto Blairsville GA to the Blue Ridge.

On each precipice Shana would take gorgeous photos to share with family. I so wish that I could have journeyed with her, but there will always be the next trip!


Weekend in NYC

HOPE sculpture on W 53rd Street; Carol Bove sculpture at The Met; Patience and Fortitude the renowned pair of lions at the 42nd Street Public Library and artwork in our hotel lobby at the Andaz on 5th.

Arriving at Penn Station on Thursday afternoon around 1:23 P.M.

This past weekend, as temps began to rise a few of us hopped the Amtrak from DC to NYC to partake in the reopening of the city after a long, challenging winter. We still had to do our part by social distancing, as there were several exhibitions worth masking up for this spring: Goya’s Graphic Imagination” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [through May 2]; “Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life” at MoMA PS1 in Queens [through Sept. 6th], and Frick Madison just re-opened in March and will house the collection and staff during the renovation of its historic buildings on East 70th Street.

Travel safely,
