Salamonie Lake - 06 Salamonie Lake - 05 Salamonie Lake - 04 Salamonie Lake - 10 Map

While in Marion for seminary classes, I went for a 3 hour solo paddle to explore the upper backwaters of Salamonie Lake and the lower section of the river.  It was a beautiful night with calm clear skies.  The water is not clear, but it seems pretty clean.  It doesn't smell bad at all, and I saw very little man made pollution.

A marvelous journey through ancient history, this short hike through the vast, tumbled rockscapes and strange formations sculpted by the winds of time is a wonderful reminder to those of us who live in the city to get out more and  explore the cultural and ecological richness of this beautiful land.

Obstacles Sun in the trees Tanglewood Park sign MTB Track No. 3 Map

Tanglewood Park has one of the nicest mountain biking courses in central North Carolina. I live near the park so I take my morning walks there; often I'll walk the MTB single-track trails on weekdays when few if any bikers are riding the trails. As far as I know this is the only GPS track available for Track No. 3, which is 4.6 miles long and has the most technical features.

Very warm day for hiking at Pilot Mountain State Park. i checked out the Sassafras Trail, a nice little nature walk with an excellent vista looking over the Sauratown Range. Trip writeup to come at Two-Heel Drive.

Bathrooms at the Summit parking lot are still under construction, which functionaly means no running water available at the summit. Porta-Potties have been set up.

Our Half Dome hike during the summer of 2010. We thought we started late and would hit a lot of traffic at the base so we kept a pretty brisk pace out to the cables (this was before you needed permits during the weekdays), but ended up fine. Hit the summit just a hair past 4 hours, rested for about an hour at the top, then headed back via the John Muir Trail.

Loooking down from viewing tower Ramp to viewing tower Dead trees and sky Rock at start of path to Clingmans Dome Map

Stopped in on Clingmans Dome, a half-mile walk up a fairly steep paved path to see the 360-degree vistas from the viewing tower. Writeup at Two-Heel Drive.

The road to Clingmans Dome is closed in winter (December-March) and any other time weather warrants. Wind, rain, storms and blizzards can blow in very quickly -- at the very least make sure you've brought some rain gear.

The last day of our 3 day backpacking trip. We leave camp at Panther Creek and head towards the High Sierra Trail, which we take back to civilization at Crescent Meadow. Along the way you will see beautiful waterfalls and snow covered mountain tops in the distance. Many more water crossings than during the previous 2 days. We stop and spent some time at Eagle View and taking in the amazing views.

Day 2 of our 3 day backpacking trip, and our only full day of hiking. First, we leave our backpacks and gear at our camp in Mehrten Meadow and head out to summit Alta Peak @ 11,200 ft. The trail had some areas of snow cover which required some scrambling but nothing that required crampons.The last 500 feet or so before the summit was covered in snow.

We start from the Wolverton parking lot mid-morning on a 4.2 mi hike that brings us to the amazing vista at Panther Gap and finish at Mehrten Meadow where we camp for the night.
