North or South?

Just a couple of random photos. Top one from Massachusetts, bottom from Virginia. After I hike in VA, I’m sure I want to go back and hike there next. After I hike in MA, I’m sure I want to go back there next. 4 hours north. 7 hours south. 20 degrees difference in daytime temperature. […]
