    With the ukulele, I’m in tune every single time! It’s awesome. I can even sing while strumming. (I’m talking, Mary Had a Little Lamb…but still, It’s In Tune!

    They literally brought me to tears. How beautiful is this? For me, it’s as beautiful as hearing the first song birds in the morning.

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies.

  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
