Walking along a fitness trail somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon line, I was startled by a rare sight. There, trudging along the forest floor amid pine trees and rhododendron was a possum. A live possum! Not a road kill possum, not a stuffed and mounted possum. This was a healthy little mama ambling her way across my path. What a thrill! (sorry, no picture of her)
Now, on to “where’s Tin Can Traveler now?” You get to see 3 photos recently taken by me to help you discover where I am.
Here’s the tricky one!
Well, not to keep you guessing: that last one is on a hill in Martinsville, Virginia. It’s actually an advertisement for the Hollywood Mountain Movie Theater which sits on top of the mountain. Clever!
At present I am volunteering at a US Army Corps of Engineers lake called Philpott Lake (the 2nd picture). Just imagine what it was like before all the water was put behind Philpott Dam.
The building (1st picture) is the Visitor Center at the lake. And let me tell you it is downright cold here. Why, oh why did I not stay in the south until April?
Next year I won’t come north until May!
