Cade’s Cove is a history tour by mistake. I like the towering peaks, the lush meadows, the bet your bottom dollar you’ll see deer and wild turkeys in the field aspect of the Cove. (The “Cade” is the name of the primary settler’s family ...

In order go camping, the first rule is get there. That’s why I belong the American Automobile Association (AAA). How good their services depends on which AAA fiefdom you’re live in. South Carolina isn’t the good fiefdom. There I was broke...

Spring in the adirondacks means mud season. We generally try to stay off the trails unless we're doing maintenance or just sticking to lower elevations. Also, non bridge water crossings can be perilous. Plenty of beauty to go around though.

I have seen tight curves in the mountains, but never a corkscrew. This picture was taken on the transmountain highway in the Smoky Mountain National Park.

Urban hike! This morning I hiked to the Hollywood sign, with a side trip to the "Bat Cave". I was born and raised in L.A. but this was my first time exploring these iconic landmarks. It was predicted to be warm, and though we started early (I voted ...

This a.m. I hiked at a place called Satwiwa Native American Cultural Center in the western Santa Monica Mountains, California. This land/these trails are sacred to the Chumash people. I didn't take many photos because I was wrangling my dog and ...

Hiking in Congree National Park. They stopped calling it a swamp and started calling it a "low land." It's so low there is a couple of miles of elevated board walk while you fight the mosquitoes. It's nice to visit the cane break on the walk without ...

Hello! I just found this group. My wife, Linda, and I enjoy hiking and snorkeling. Hiking is a great way to get out and enjoy nature, and get to places those tour buses won't take you to. I've attached a few pics of some of our more recent ...

For St. Patrick's Day I hiked to a local waterfall with my group of dog parents/friends. It was a perfect 80° day! As we walked along the dogs in the group (it's a revolving bunch) all seemed to accept each other as part of a temporary "pack". I ...

A picture of my son and I hiking on the small mountain behind my house. Just thought that I'd contribute to the winter hiking theme! Any others?
