That was a night I will never forget, sitting on the patio with family and friends while celebrating our Independence Day. There was one day that we decided to not stay at the beach all day. Everyone was ready to do something different. The adults wanted to cruise the town in search of another great restaurant to sit down and enjoy a nice meal, but not us kids. Right across the road from the beach, there was a zoo!
Every year I enjoy vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains. The Great Smoky Mountains, truly are God’s country, with the vast mountain ranges, luscious landscapes, and hypnotizing fresh water streams. I enjoy hiking through the popular trails throughout the Great Smoky Mountains. The Smoky Mountains are covered with hundreds of different trees, but the tallest tree in the Smoky Mountains is the Great Tulip tree. The Great Tulip tree is the tallest of the trees, reaching nearly two hundred feet tall.

I am sure Stephanie, and especially Zak and Noah, still have some very fond memories of that particular trip. The following spring, 2005, we went to Fredericksburg, TX with Manly and Joe to look at and take pictures of all the bluebonnets along the way. I thought the route through Gatesville and then go south to Fredericksburg was the best way to go because Stephanie once lived in Gatesville, and Eva and I were aware of the beautiful spots where the wild bluebonnets bloomed along the highway from Waco to Gatesville. Since the first visit to Fredericksburg, we have been back several times just to see the bluebonnet trails and the amenities offered in the Fredericksburg area. On the first trip to Fredricksburg, we passed by the LBJ ranch.
Usually, when one goes to visit a beach or any other water body, it is easy to discern between what is water and what is land. This lake was different, the surface of the water seemed just as an extension of the land. It emanated its cold nature from the distance, relieving the natural heat of the summer without even having to enter on its magical waters. The most compelling aspect of that body of water was that it reflected the world just as a mirror, creating the illusion that it was possible to cross into another world just as if we lived inside a Lewis Caroll novel. Everything reflected on it was even more magnificent, the sun was brighter, the mountains were taller, the clouds were puffier and the leaves were greener.
Moving In! Many people were surprised by the coziness of dugouts and sod houses. They were cool in the summer, warm in the winter and good shelter from the wild prairie weather. The fact that they were basically made of dirt made them virtually fireproof. Turning a Soddie into a Home Most sod houses were about 16 feet by 20 feet and had only one room.
Camp Lutherhoma is a place where I have met countless amazing people and many exemplary friends. Everything there makes me happy. Everything from the exuberant camp songs to the soothing campfires. The enduring feeling of peace I get when we pull into the gravel parking area is overwhelming and I love it. One year at Camp Lutherhoma I had the blessing of having an amazing counselor by the name of Rando.
I am a mid 20’s man that lives in the country. I love to duck hunt; If there was anything that I could do all day everyday it would be duck hunting. When I was a young boy I started to duck hunt and it just stayed with me after that and now that is my life and I love to duck hunt with a passion. To me there isn’t anything better to do than duck hunt. If I could have a job duck hunting I would do it in a heartbeat.

The native trees, shrubs and wild flowers found here are hardy, able to thrive in the poor soils left by the last ice sheet. The floodplain forest includes silver maples, swamp white oak and sycamore. When I was there I was treated to a showy spring explosion of beautiful flowering dogwood. They provided a nice splash of color against a backdrop of growing green leaves. If you look around the Route 1 bridge you can see what 's left of the 19th century stone mill dam.
The mill is open for tours and corn-grinding demonstrations on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Stone ground cornmeal and grits are always available.
