#232 Happy Birthday Meriwether

On August 18, 1774, Meriwether Lewis was born at Locust Hill, a Virginia plantation about 7 miles from where we live in Charlottesville.
233 years later, I celebrated with an historian-led hike through a nearby preserved natural area. Since Meriwether spent his childhood exploring the wilderness, I'm confident I walked today in his footsteps.

But if you really want to walk in Meriwether's footsteps, you might consider purchasing the Locust Hill property, now for sale for ~$2 million.
Yours in choosing the natural (and financially prudent) celebration,
