Photo Album for Cades Cove. Photo Album for Ozone Falls, TN. We woke the next morning to discover that the meteorologists were on their game. Rain had indeed moved in and would hang around much of the day. We decided to go ahead and wash all of our hiking clothes, clean up the gear and … Continue reading Wrapping Up The Reboot
Photo Album for this hike. The title of this post is indeed correct. We took a whopping six days to do the 35 miles of the Lakeshore Trail. The average hiker would likely do it in three. The ambitious hiker, two. There are those select few that might knock it out in a day. Bulldog … Continue reading GSMNP, Lakeshore Trail (Days 4-6) – April 2021
Photo Album for this hike. Our brief tour of the SE quadrant of the park continued with a snail-pace hike along the Lakeshore Trail. With the exception of day four, the weather was predicted to be really nice. Cool nights in camp and perfect hiking...okay, strolling for us...weather during the day. It actually got a … Continue reading GSMNP, Lakeshore Trail (Days 1-3) – April 2021
There are times when fate steps in and all things seem to come out just right. Plans for the trip to Arkansas and the Buffalo River Trail fell apart, leaving us both pretty dejected. It just wasn't meant to be. At least not yet. As it turned out, we ended up exactly where we were … Continue reading GSMNP – Fate Leads Us to a Legend!
Photo Album for this hike. After a night's stay in Bryson City, we moved down to Fontana Dam. A shuttle from Bryson City Outfitters dropped us off at Twentymile Ranger Station around 1 PM and after a few pics, we set off. We were only going so far as campsite 93, a mere 1.8 miles … Continue reading GSMNP, Twentymile to AT to Fontana Dam – April 2021
Photo Album from this hike. I should note that once again I used my phone while Loonie used the 35mm and due to the date/time being off on the Canon, the pics are not necessarily in sequential order for the hike. We escaped the madness that is Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and drove over Newfound … Continue reading GSMNP – Noland Creek Out and Back Overnight Hike
Photo Album for this hike. We start off the trip by driving nine hours in the rain. By the time we reach Pigeon Forge, the rain has petered out and the skies have begun to clear. The next morning, we're heading for Cosby. Destination is the Maddron Bald trailhead. Its time we make the long … Continue reading GSMNP – Albright Grove Dayhike
The post title pretty much sums it up. We are NOT in Arkansas hiking the Buffalo River Trail. And no, we are NOT in Rocky Mountains National Park like we had planned prior to deciding to do the Arkansas trip instead. Since my last post many moons ago, a series of events unfolded that led to … Continue reading GSMNP Reboot…
I added pics from the day hike to the Walker Sisters' Place and the hunt for the Yellow Lady Slippers to the gallery I put up last week from mine and Loonie's four day AT trip. You can find those here. Starting to dig my way through the pics from mine and Deep Woods AT … Continue reading Gallery Update…
Little by little, I've been making my way through all of the pics from this last trip. I finally put up a link to the gallery for mine and Loonie's four-day backpacking trip on the AT and down to Cades Cove, which you can find here. Many of these pics were covered in my posts … Continue reading First Gallery is Up!
