Vacation Day 9
Hike #28 #52hikechallenge High Knob Trail to fire tower
We packed up camp in the morning and headed back up 33 to the trail head for one last hike.
Again what won’t Clay do for a picture?
After the hike we had a picnic lunch at the the roadside overlook and said our goodbyes!
What a relaxing and fun week of camping and exploring with friends!
Till next year…
Vacation Day 6 – Hike 27 #52hikechallenge
We were not happy with last night’s campsite, muddy, bugs, so we moved again.
Clay, Kay and I headed out for a later afternoon hike on the Sawmill Trail. Lots of blown down trees to climb over, and LOTS of bear scat, no luck seeing one.
Sam and I walked down to the lake for the sunset, nice to have a quiet moment with the two of us! I am glad she suggested it.
Vacation Day 4 – We headed back to Panther Falls and had the place to ourselves. Jumped off the rocks, swam, tried to find the cave entrance behind the waterfall, and had lunch. After lunch, a couple other groups had arrived, our cue to leave!
Crabtree Falls – Hike #26 #52hikechallenge
This was a more strenuous hike than we thought, mainly cause it is straight up. The waterfalls were pretty – something about being tallest east of something or another….
but needed more water flow
Sam adds a cairn to the 100s built along the trail.
But this Copperhead was not interested in a cairn…
Vacation Day 3 – Hike #25 #52hikechallenge
The Henry Lanum Trail up to the top of Mt. Pleasant and then loop around for 2 more tops over 4,000 feet. It felt like the trail was uphill the whole way, but the views were worth it.
