road trip day 6

Today we drove the garden-of-eden route from Northern Virginia to Upstate New York. Green, rolling hills and beautiful bridges over the Susquehana River. We are now in the outskirts of Palmyra, NY which is, for us as Mormons, a place of pilgrimage and peace.
Tomorrow we will go to the historical sites after we attend church at the local stake center. I look forward to a quiet reflecting time in the grove of trees where a miracle occurred, and to a printing business where a book that has changed my life was published.

Been catching up on your trip here, lady. I love that you're documenting it here. What an amazing time with friends.

Do you guys pump your fists to try to get truckers to honk? :)

I am jealous, this is the trip I want to take my family on.

Have a great time, post lots of photos.

The last time I was in Palmyra was 2 years ago. We had the Sacred Grove all to ourselves. How do I know this? We were there in a down pour with no umbrella. But determined to take my hubby through for the first time!

I am so excited for you to be on this pilgrimage!

I'm still looking forward to that...someday. LOVE that you're there!
