Cloudland Canyon

For Amber’s birthday last fall, we went camping in Cloudland Canyon. We camped in the walk-in campground which was nice and secluded, but full due to the season.

Here’s our first day’s hike, around the West rim loop.

On the second day, we went to see the waterfalls and the overlooks near the park office.

Here are some photos.

Smoky Mountains

Fall is the best season to go camping and hiking. And I love the fall colors you can see in the mountains. So once again we headed to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park a couple of weeks ago for some camping, riding, hiking and driving.

We had three black bear sightings in the smokies this time.

Here’s the trail to Laurel Falls.

Here’s the trail to the observation tower at the top of Clingman’s Dome which gives a nice view around.

The hike from Clingman’s Dome to Andrews Bald was great and the views from a bald are always the best.
