This year I'm setting 11 new resolutions to get myself out there doing fun things and exploring the mid-Atlantic region!
1. Although I'm scared of heights, I've long wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride. So although it's a big ticket item, I'm adding it to the top of my 2015 wishlist!

5.Visit Fort McHenry in Baltimore, followed by brunch in downtown Baltimore, and a visit to the Star Spangled Banner House. The two historic sites seem to naturally fall together. This was on last year's wishlist -- but despite good intentions, we never made it happen.

10. Hike up to Maryland Heights, just across the Potomac River from Harpers Ferry. I'd better start training, since judging by my friend's experience, it's a grueling climb! It would be lovely when the leaves start popping out in color in early Autumn!
11. Another bike ride helps finish of this wishlist of adventure, this time along the New River Trail in southern Virginia. The highlight of the New River Trail, and namesake of this magnificent trail, is the 36-mile section running through Grayson, Carroll, Wythe and Pulaski counties along the New River. I want to bike that 36-mile section.
