Gregs Hiking Pages
This self-portrait is on Duck Hawk Rock on the Alum Cave Trail.
This is along a trail to Mt. Le Conte in the Smoky Mountains of TN.
I have to climb up and over this, then across the top and down off-trail to get to my car.
This area is now restricted. On May 6, 2000, a sign and a plastic coated metal wire barred our entrance to the area and threatened a $20,000 endangered species fine. A Peregrine Falcon has taken up residence on the shear cliff face that I am sitting next to. It is at about the same height as me and about 100 to 125 feet behind me. We saw it moving about and possibly hunting. I am glad to have been able to hike here before it was closed. I apologize to my brothers for walking all the way there for nothing. See the Duck Hawk Rock Page for more photos and griping.
|Hiking can be so exiting sometimes. I cannot believe a friend got me like this on a dayhike in the Smoky Mountains. I guess I was relaxed. That is what it is about.|
