Pictures of Gary Allman — If you don’t see me in one of the pictures below it means I’m featured in a picture in the post.

Hike over – back at the Tower Trailhead.

Lazing in my hammock – I’m having a lazy day. And why not? Until the bugs and weeds die back a bit I’m quite happy to lay here and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Gary and the Pole Hollow Cairn – Time for the obligatory selfie at the cairn. I prefer this black and white version. +1

This would have been a great weekend to get away into the woods. The temperatures are in the low eighties, and the rain has cleared out for a while. Instead, I decided to do some chores at home. One-minute read, +1

Day Four – End of hike selfie – All in all, a brilliant trip, with lots of journaling, swimming and relaxing watching the lake. You can’t beat that. One-minute read

Day Three – Feet up, enjoying the Campfire. +1

Fun and frolics at the lake – The lake was warm, almost bath temperature. I didn’t bother to count how many times I took a dip. It was a lot. Slideshow: +5

Journaling – I did a lot of thinking and scribbling. Unfortunately, I came away with a lot more questions than answers. +1

Enjoying the view – between interludes of journaling and swimming. I even completed some camp chores.

Day Three – Morning coffee

Day Two Campfire.

Gary & Ginger at the Pole Hollow Cairn – I know how to treat Ginger to a good time, I made sure she had plenty of exercise, time to relax, and her own room with a forest view. One-minute read, +1

Only two or three miles left to go.

Lunch break, and I’m showing a bit too much thigh – I had a choice of routes to take today. The short route takes the North Fork Loop east back to the Ozark Trail, where I could get back to the trailhead. The longer route goes south, and into the Devil’s Backbone Wilderness, and returns to Highway CC via the McGarr Ridge Trail. One-minute read

Family Day – Spent with Carol & Jim to celebrate Lanie’s Graduation. Katie was also with us but unfortunately, she left before we decided to take a picture.

Behind the lens – I thought I’d grab a quick selfie in the bedroom mirror.

Whites Creek Trail completed – now just to hike the short spur trail back to the parking lot.

Time for a nice cup of hot chocolate – Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate, of course. +1

Gary, ready to get moving again – On the Whites Creek Trail, Irish Wilderness. When it comes to backpacking fashion, I lead where others dare not follow 🙂 +1

Lunch Break on Whites Creek Trail – Well, it was more of a snack than lunch. I didn’t want to spend time heating some food, so I made do with a tuna sachet.
