Walk in the Park

Notice that I have changed the name of my blog once again. I want to make the blog reflect what I try to do every day, which is go for some kind of walk in a park!

I just returned from a 16-day odyssey through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina, mostly following the Blue Ridge Parkway, a linear national park following this beautiful mountain chain for more than 400 miles. Upon my return to little old Ithaca, NY, I realized how tiny we are here and how insular I’d gotten over the past few months. So this refreshed perspective prompts me to broaden the scope of this blog to parks everywhere, including parks I may not have been to or discussion of issues affecting or reflected by parks. I welcome your comments, and your suggestions about neat parks!

Walk in the Park is also the name of my YouTube video channel that has many short videos that you may have seen in my posts. And Walk in the Park is also the name of one of my Facebook pages; there’s not been a lot of activity there, but I expect to pick that up.

I am also toying with the idea of starting a regular public access TV show in Ithaca with the same title. Stay tuned!
