I recently heard a quote by the Virginia State Parks Field Operations Manager, Craig Seaver, “You never know the true value of a moment until it is a memory.”
For my family, Virginia’s state parks have been a constant. The girls have never known a time when Hungry Mother State Park was not in their life. In fact, two of the three girls actually lived in the park during their childhood. So, it didn’t really surprise me that the park is where our 19 year old wanted to go on her first weekend home from college.
She and her daddy took off (with our dog) to Molly’s Knob in the park. Molly’s Knob is one of the most popular but strenuous trails at Hungry Mother. But a hike is never too strenuous to take pictures (it is a wonderful excuse to stop and get your breath too). The afternoon was a get way for the two to reconnect after her first year away from home. What a way to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Time spent together is never wasted!
And the view is unbelievable…
