Blowing Rock, NC, is famous for (drum roll please) a rock that blows. No. Really. Perched on a cliff face, winds travel upward channeled to a rock overhanging the cliff. This creates a seldom seen phenomenon of snow blowing upward. Native ... Posted in Hiking, Backpacking, Travel Photos group

I went hiking in Devil's Fork trail just to find the most difficult to find flower, the Oconee Bell. Until the trail was established, it had been "lost" for over two centuries. It's one hell of a botanical nightmare. Youtube

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 ... Posted in Hiking, Backpacking, Travel Photos group

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... Posted in Hiking, Backpacking, Travel Photos group

My first serious back packing trip as an adult was in the Grover Cleveland National Forest. I slowly lumbered up the side of Mount Kong, a foothill with ambition, one summer until I reached the summit on the southern end of the Pacific Crest Trail. ...

I'll be making the annual trip to Helen, Ga. It pretends to be an English speaking town in the alps with a southern drawl.

One of my all time favorite moments - I was visiting a friend in Minnesota and we went to Duluth and stayed by Lake Superior. One night we went out to the beach and I started a fire. It drew people from all over, even someone with a guitar. Sat there... Posted in Hiking, Backpacking, Travel Photos group
