    Finally got to take my previously promised hike today in the 'Lynn Woods', an urban forest. Just a few miles, it was a great day to be out. Here are some towers in the Lynn Woods that I think were built as CCC projects...

    Kathy has banned me from using the mower as I've run over too many of her flower plants. If they have flowers I know not to mow them down but the rest of the year I can't tell them from the grass. It's my job to keep the mower running and Kathy's to…

    Kathy and I went out to some state land (7200 acres) and took a walk this afternoon. The sky was partly sunny and partly cloudy, the temperature was in the low 50s at the start and high 40s at the finish with a pretty good breeze. It's a Pine Barrens…

  • 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.
