I come from a long line of “outdoor” people. They loved nothing more than to be off in the mountains or the deep woods. When growing up, since my Grandfather was an engineer on the
Road, my Mother’s family all had passes on the
R.R. My Mom even road the train to
school and back and sometimes she would leave school alone or with her sister
or brothers and ride the train the whole way to the mountains where they had a
camp. After departing the train, they
had to hike up to the top of a mountain to where the camp was located. I believe I talked about this before on one of
my older blogs. I just wanted to give
you a little background for today’s subject, high-top boots.
This was taken on one of their hikes in the Appalachian Mountains of north central
. That is probably Mix Run and it would be near
the small town of Pennsylvania .
Let me zoom in a little and so you can
see how they are dressed: Driftwood
Still can’t see the boots? How about this:
They sure did know how to have a good time. Now you know why I love nature and getting out “in the woods” so much. It is in my blood. Now, you all go out this holiday weekend and take a walk and enjoy nature, you hear?
