Procrastination

I’ve been avoiding Life in the Bogs lately. Unfortunately, that means I’ve gotten behind in keeping up with my favorite bloggers as well.

The reason I’ve been procrastinating when it comes to my own blog is that I really haven’t felt like finishing up the trip from September. I mean, here it is the middle of October and I’m still back in September when it comes to being up to date with the blog.

Of course there’s no rule that says I have to finish posting about the trip. It’s my blog, after all. I can do what I want with it. But I do feel badly about not getting past our first two days of a week long trip.

So, I think what I’ll do is post some of my favorite photos from the trip. If I feel like adding a little prose to go with it, I’ll do so. Otherwise, enjoy the pictures.

I suppose I ought to say a little about Jefferson’s Rock. Or rather, let Thomas Jefferson say it. In 1783 Thomas Jefferson visited Harpers Ferry and declared it “was worth a voyage across the Atlantic — to survey these monuments of war between rivers and mountains which must have shaken the earth itself to its center.” He also called the site “perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in nature.”

I’m not sure I’d go that far, but it is a stupendous scene.

Here’s the rock itself:
