Cowrock Mountain is one of the most accessible, and best views on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. Unlike Blood Mountain, which has somewhat better views with a *much* harder hike, Cowrock Mountain is a short, fairly easy hike up from a little used trailhead along the Richard Russell Scenic Highway.[Read more…] about Hiking Cowrock Mountain in Winter
Running & Exploring The Outdoors
I'm a fan of biking, running, hiking, backcountry camping and exploring the incredible outdoors.
This photo is of DeSoto Falls in North Georgia. It’s a really incredible view and very accessible near US Highway 129.[Read more…] about Desoto Falls
This photo is from the Lake Conasauga Swim Beach in the mountains of North Georgia. It is the highest elevation lake in Georgia, so the water is *cold*. Also, it’s not really a beach per se, as a swimming area. The area gets deep quickly at the dock. But it’s lovely on a summer day.
In March, I went on my first solo backpacking trip. It was only a single overnight. The weather forecast was all over the place, so I settled on the Cheaha Wilderness in Alabama, ironically the day after a huge system of storms came through. I’ve hiked the Cheaha Wilderness before, so I was fairly familiar with the area.[Read more…] about Hiking Nubbin Creek / Pinhoti Trail in Cheaha Wilderness
This photo is of the South River as it leaves the City of Atlanta on its way through Panola Mountain State Park and beyond to eventually join the Yellow River and become the Ocmulgee. It’s quiet with steep banks. There’s an access point on the Constitution Springs loop trail just past the boardwalk that connects to the Doll’s Head Trail.
I visited Mojave National Preserve on a short day trip within my business trip to Las Vegas in 2020.
I rented a car, and drove straight out of Las Vegas down Interstate 15, which goes right through the Preserve.[Read more…] about On Visiting Mojave National Preserve
