    OK, I really took this walk a week ago, but here are a few photos of my visit to Skellig Michael. Skellig Michael is an island off the coast of Kerry. Monks built a hermitage on this inaccessible island around 500-600 AD. It takes a bit of luck to…

    I would definitely recommend this trail. Lots of waterfalls and some nice views. Plenty of stairs/steps to make the elevation gains/losses easier. Lots of campsites, many with benches. At 76.2 miles easy to do in a week. I started at 3:30pm Sunday…

    One other note, I went the second week of May which was great. The young woman I hiked on SNP of the AT this past week said she did it September, which was still fine with her since everyday there was a least once place she could get into the water and…

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
