Hiking, Smoky Mountains, Southeast / 01.09.2014

This hike included 2 difficult climbs of Mt Le Conte in hot humid weather. I carried a fully provisioned backpack including a food filled bear vault up the Bullhead Trail. A bicycle was used to travel the short distance between trailheads of Grapeyard Ridge and Porters Creek of this near loop walk. The hike covered nearly all hiking trails in the triangle formed between Greenbrier Road, Mt Le Conte, and Gatlinburg. Itinerary: Total hike (44.8 miles, including a mile down and up Roaring Fork Road in wrong direction.) Day...

Hiking, Southeast / 17.08.2014

This is an out and back overnight backpacking trip along the Chunky Gal trail from Glade Gap on NC Highway 64 over Boteler Peak and on to Little Clay Knob. After camping on top of Little Clay Knob, I hiked back to Glade Gap. This hike was approximately 20 miles round trip. Much of the trail past Boteler Peak paralleled a road. This is a well blazed though sometimes overgrown trail. I saw no other hikers over the weekend. Boteler Peak has two nice vistas, one of Lake...

On July 10th I tackled two 14'ers at the same time. Grays and Torreys peak can be easily picked out from the Frisco area where I was staying. From Frisco, look east toward Keystone and pick out a rounded peak on the right with a pointed peak just to the left. It is a fairly easy hike down the saddle of Grays Peak and back up Torreys Peak as long as you have the energy and stamina to reach the top of Grays Peak. Getting there: Getting there is a little...

Colorado, Western US / 09.07.2014

On July 9th at about 7 AM, Sandra dropped me off at Wheeler Flats near Copper Mountain. I hiked about 12 miles from Copper Mountain to Frisco on the Gore Range and North Ten Mile trails. I started at an elevation around 9700 feet and reached an elevation just under 12,000 feet somewhere above Uneva pass. I didn't see any other hikers on Gore Range trail; however, I ran into several campers (out and back hike) just short of Uneva Pass. There were a number of hikers on North...
