Gary Allman

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.

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.

Breakfast at Denny’s – Breakfast, our first meal out in over a year.

Tomfoolery at the trailhead. +2

The end of the hike – Day hike with Katie and Lanie. I took them to my favorite spot in Piney Creek Wilderness. It was an easy 5.5 mile hike with 570ft of elevation, and a nice long lunch stop by the lake.

Gary eating lunch – Day hike at Piney Creek Wilderness.

Lanie’s Selfie – She should know better by now, I’ll publish them all. +1

Tidying away – After one thousand miles of driving, two nights away, and three live-streamed services, I get a chance to tidy away the AV equipment. It’s been a busy Holy Week. Two-minute read

Gary and the tower at the Pineview Trailhead – Trip over, 14.5 miles hiked, 1,300 ft. climbed, and some downtime by the lake. Just what the Dr. ordered. Now for more of what the Dr. ordered. My COVID-19 vaccination. +1, and three maps

I’ve been here before – This is where the trail down to Siloam Spring joins the farm road. I didn’t have anyone to take my picture this time, and the lack of leaves to block the sun is making me squinty. Well, that’s my excuse. +1

Gary on the hike back – All I really need to say about the hike out is that it rained. A lot. +2

Pole Hollow Cairn (it’s behind me) – The weather seems to be doing a better job of keeping me off the trails in 2021 than COVID-19 did in 2020. Two-minute read

New work profile picture – It’s time for a new profile picture for work — the old one was taken in 2011, ten years ago. How did that happen?

Hike over, back at the trailhead – That’s my hike over, and it’s just before 4:15 p.m. Not bad, and still daylight. I should be home by 5:45 p.m. I completed today’s hike of six-plus miles in a little over three hours. I’ll take that.

Back at the Pole Hollow Cairn – It was too dark on the hike out Friday night for my obligatory Pole Hollow Cairn selfie, so I decided to slip one in on my return hike. +1
