Sentimental Sunday - Father's Day

This old, faded photo used to sit on my Dad's desk and shows my first hiking trip with him in the Smoky Mountains.

There are so many experiences I've had thanks to him. We've been camping everywhere from the Florida Keys, up the east coast, out west to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Zion, the Rocky Mountains, the Smoky Mountains and many other places. He used to love boating and we've been deep sea fishing in the Atlantic, taken day trips to islands in the Indian River, gone sailing, and tried our hand at water skiing. He passed his love of photography on to me and my sister and got me started in genealogy. He passed away in 2008 and we miss him greatly, but cherish all the memories.
