In October, we usually head to North Georgia to hike, enjoy the nice weather and see some fall colors. This time we booked a room at the Len Foote Hike Inn which can only be reached by hiking 5 miles from the Amicalola Falls State Park. Here is our hike path from Amicalola Falls to… Continue reading Len Foote Hike Inn

This month we celebrated 17 years of our marriage. It’s been a long, great time. Also last week I turned 41. For my birthday, Amber and Michelle got me a bicycle, a Cannondale Quick 5 hybrid. And here I am, a long long time ago.

We had three black bear sightings in the smokies… Continue reading Smoky Mountains
We went to Nathiagali in the mountains (elevation: 7,900ft) to escape the heat in Islamabad. The weather was warm there but much nicer. We rode/hiked to Mushkpuri peak (elevation: 9,200ft) which was a lot of fun and had beautiful scenery. On our way back, we stopped in Bhurban.
The almost seven year old wanted to hike up Margalla Hills but it was too hot. We drove up to Daman e Koh and then had dinner at Monal Restaurant in Pir Sohawa. Both places have a nice view of Islamabad.
