Where we last left off, my friends and were taking a jaunt through the woods.
|The Lovely Adventuring Group|
Our progress was slowed by the fact that every time my eyes spotted something pretty I had to stop, pause, and take copious amounts of pictures.
My friends were nice enough to wait as I snapped shots of the bridges, the views, and even the pretty leaves.
We took a few detours off the beaten path-- we hung out on this little rocky outcropping for a little bit, gazing into the forest.
We were running off the fuel of a couple of muffins taken from the motel lobby. The beauty of nature, though, distracted me from the fact that I was missing lunch. And I never miss meals.
It was just so nice, to be out in nature. Such a needed change from the stress of daily college life. Instead of worrying about physics; obsessing over differential equations, I was relaxed, just enjoying life.
Look at that view! This was the largest overlook we found-- the view was just amazing. I might post a panoramic later. It was very lord of the rings-esque, with the undulating forest, hidden streams just barely peaking out through the trees.
We knew we had to leaven soon-- it was late and we didn't really know how to get back to where we parked the car.
All for the shot?
After little difficulty, we found our way back to the car. Flipping through the food options on my awesome GPS we settled on a cheap, authentic Chinese restaurant.
Sadly, we couldn't escape the burden of a heavy homework load forever, so we headed to a local Barns and Noble to get some work done.
|Once again, thank you Dave and loose Facebook regulations.|
The finals were, in short, kind of amazing. The poems were touching, insightful, and funny. Well not all at once I should say. I should've taped some of them-- they were all so good!
After the finals were over, and a winner declared, we started our late car ride back to the wonderful world of Hendrix.
And that, my dear friends, is how our first ever college road trip of epicness happened.
Thanks for reading :)
