The weather is beautiful here in the Blue Ridge and the Go Outside Festival is happening this weekend in Roanoke. The Princess and I attended the festival last year and had a great time – she left with a new bicycle.
I am helping build a timber frame structure this weekend and cannot get to the festival but it reminds me that it is such a terrific time of year, my favorite time, to get outdoors. My friend Joe is camping and fishing in the St. Mary’s Wilderness this weekend and others will be getting out to the mountains to enjoy the great weather. I hope that wherever you are you have a chance to get outside for a good walk, hike or bike.
Timber framing is something I’ve been interested in for years and this is the fourth time I’ve been involved in the building of a timber frame structure. I won’t be able to go hiking this weekend but I will be outdoors in a beautiful setting trying to improve my skills. Here’s a photo from a previous timber framing project…you can click on it to make it bigger.
