It’s a six-and-a-half mile hike from the trailhead to the bluffs overlooking Beaver Creek on the western edge of Hercules Glades. I’ve been wanting to get a nice sunset picture from here for ages. It wasn’t going to happen today though, everything was very wishy-washy. I also hadn’t reckoned on how dense the foliage would be at the top of the bluff. There was only a couple of places where it was possible to get any sort of a view and they both involved getting a lot closer to the edge of the (200 ft.) bluff than I’m particularly comfortable with.
In the picture below, for some odd reason, I’m looking a bit cheeky. I have no idea why. I blame the altitude.Copyright © 2019 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
