    Just wanted to recommend a short walk in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire that I think gives the most bang-for-the-buck in the area. The Table Rock trail is just 0.3 miles, pretty much straight up, short and sweet. I even got my wife to join me. The…

    Thanks, but I claim no distinction for attending. I’m able to walk about and enjoy this great country mostly to the efforts of two US military members whom I was unable to identify nor ascertain their unit.

  • 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.
