    Kathy and I got out for a 15 mile bike ride today. The pollen is so heavy in the air that we both were sneezin + weezin. Kathy was smart enough to wear sunglasses, to keep it out of her eyes, me, I'm not that smart. For most of the ride it felt like I…

    Did a two mile walk through MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Ontario. It was supposed to be for bird watching (it's migration season and a big birding festival was going on) but we saw few birds. There were lots of nice wildflowers (lady slipper,…

    We were on our walk today at MacGregor Point Provincial Park today. I was using my phone to ID bird songs with the Merlin App when a Black Capped Chickadee landed on my phone. Scared the crap out of me. The bird and I both survived.

  • 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.
