    Quote from CoachLou: “Where will you be Sat/Sun? ” No, wife's family reunion in Ohio. But that will keep me in good standing so I can come back next July to knock out Pinkham Notch to Grafton Notch and Monson to Mt Katahdin. :)

  • 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.

  • 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.
