April 6, 2004


With the a few pictures came this snippet from Ruth.


Yes! It is spring time here! Flowering crabapples and dogwoods and daffodils and creeping phlox... GREEN - pretty lime green, Chartreuse, Soylent Green!

It truly is encouraging! We logged into the book at Amicalola Falls Park. Tomorrow, we return up USFS 42 and sprint the .9 mile to the Peak of Springer Mountain, come back to the car and Mom + Dad give us a the big kiss off and we walk on home!

Tonight, the feeling I have is that of preparing to jump into a cold lake for the first time. Holding my breath and cringing.

Can't wait! (Can't wait to get a night or two under our belts!) I believe the sun will shine on us tomorrow morning.

Luck + Love,
