Mine hasn't been anywhere exciting lately, but the last two times I went to my local EMS I've been stopped by customers and people working at the store, "Wow! Do you work at Mount Washington?! I've been thinking about climbing that!" I usually end up talking for about 20-30 min about the hikes I've been on, pushing StP, the Obs and encouraging them to come here for info.
Mine was out taking pictures again early this morning....
I headed out early to catch sunrise at Fearrington Village south of Chapel Hill, NC. It is a "housing development" with a small village of shops that are really nice. A wonderful place for a wedding or party. The Inn is a great place to stay and meals there are fantastic.
Here are a few of the pictures:
More beautiful shots Brad. You're fleece is certainly getting to some nice places...
Brad Bradstreet-Photographer of Light. Move over Russ Kincade. Great stuff, Brad!
Nope - I seem to like the night. No people around and you can get some interesting stuff.
I have not heard yet where my fleece wants to go this weekend. Might depend on if it wants to get cold in the NC mountains. With very little layering the fleece is extremely warm even down into the teens.
Your fleece takes wonderful photos....
Worry not, we'll have fleeces again this year! We've also been toying with the idea of doing different colored t-shirts for different fundraising levels...
Over the past month or so my fleece has been seen in several places - St Louis for the NCAA Women's basketball semi and final games - Raleigh, NC - Popham Beach, Maine - Annapolis, Maryland - Outer Banks, NC - Beavertail Light, RI - Mattapoiset, Mass - Cambridge (Harvard Square, our fair city), Mass. It has been a tiring year - but someone had to do it all. It does need a traveling companion.
STP Fleece has officially made it to Yosemite's Half Dome (8800') and Cloud's Rest (10,000)!
(More pics and reports to come later.)
