New Year's Day Hike

To celebrate 2012 and the glorious 65 degree weather here in Virginia Dan, Annie and I got in our car, crossed the James River on the Surry Ferry and went to the Chippokes Plantation State Park for a nice long hike. Along our route we passed a farm - Annie always loves sniffing the farm animals. Dan and I spent Christmas in Colorado visiting our families - Ellen and Chris have a great post recounting the action at their house:
