So I recently go a GoPro Hero 2 camera for doing time lapses as the ship pulls into each port. I saw an interesting post on Reddit that someone had used it as their main camera while traveling which sparked my interest in taking some photos with it.

Here are some photos from the Charlottesville Downtown Mall.

 

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a place to hiking within 30 minutes of Charlottesville and I found Walnut Creek Park. It’s an easy 20 minute drive south of Charlottesville and has lots of nice trails for hiking, running, and mountain biking. It also has a nice beach area and a disc golf course. There are 2 parking areas, one near the entrance for accessing most of the hiking and biking trails and one further down by the beach and disc golf area.

Here is a great trail map, I went for the Wilkins Way trail that was a nice long loop with some moderate hills. I didn’t think was too strenuous, but I ran up the hills to get more of a workout. I didn’t see that many people, but it must get busier in the summer. I’ll┬ádefinitely┬ábe back for more hiking and exploring.

Here are some of the photos I took:
