Continue on south and visit the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially the area around Blowing Rock - one of my favorite places. Another good place to visit is the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.

I agree fully w/ living our lives - esp the “magical” aspects that bring peace & joy. I wasn’t sure what to think about the cell phone test though, because as of the last 3+ years (I realize it goes much further back, but I was blindly unaware of the worst of it until 2020) & what has been done to us - & their open plans for us in near & distant future, no evil “conspiracy theory” lacks credibility or surprises anymore as most of those have turned out to be spoiler alerts (& not crazy) anyway.

I tend to agree on the get out in nature and the emergency test thing though I suppose that a phone can transmit a more localized signal especially if near you. I turned my phone off, not because I was worried about the test, but because it was midnight-1:00 Am in Thailand and I find I sleep better without those blue lights on at all. I guess I got too used to having no electric!

The photographs are wonderful.

I would also wish it was less people-y :)
