|After about two weeks of steady rain and cold and dreary days, the sun made an appearance yesterday. I felt like a bear must feel coming out of hibernation after a long winter's nap, and I couldn't wait to get out and enjoy the brightness of the day.|
I decided to take my cameras and drive over to the Vicksburg National Cemetery, located inside the Vicksburg National Military Park, which is a ten-minute drive from my house.
I had a destination in mind and it didn't take me long to weave my way through the cemetery to the site of the majestic old Gingko tree, standing tall and proud high on a hill overlooking the Port of Vicksburg in the distance.
I love that old tree and have photographed it on many occasions.
Standing under its canopy is truly an awe-inspiring experience, and I have wished on more than one occasion that it could talk and share the stories and scenes it must have witnessed during its lifetime.
Our sunny skies are supposed to be with us for several days and my husband and I plan to get out this weekend and do some exploring "off the beaten path." You never know what you may find down all those "less-traveled" country roads.
