Journal - Finally sketched on site while my dh had his doctor appointment. Having been indoors for so long with Covid precautions and excessive summer heat, I'm a bit rusty -- but at least had a chance to get back into sketching on location. I've missed it.

\Travel Journal - One of the most fun hikes we took while away was the "Nifty Rocks" trail in Uwharrie National Forest, NC..... We found the trail well enough where we encountered boulders and rock formations that were indeed "Nifty"! However, somewhere along the loop that went past the lake and was to 'return' us to the trailhead, the blazes got a bit, shall we say, hidden???, and were got ourselves pretty much lost at the 'top' of this incredible, almost cleared rock center. While we circled the space looking for our trail blaze, we thoroughly enjoyed what might have been a settlement of some kind (never found out), but the rocks were truly impressive and beautiful. Charles finally found the trail, and we were back to the trailhead in no time. I'd love to return for another trail hike -- The Uwharries are now incredible "hills' - but mountains to us flatlanders ... full of forests, water, streams, and those incredible rocks.
