Hiking

Hercules Glades Backpacking in November. Van problems forced me to select a nearby trail for a late fall break. Another visit to Hercules Glades was on the cards. [53 pictures, lots of words and one short video]

At The End Of The Hike – The temperature was in the 80s, and I had just finished my hike with 920′ of elevation gain, so I’m allowed to look a little sweaty. [4 pictures]

Dry Falls – Panorama. [1 picture]

Dry Falls – We’ve never seen more than a trickle pouring over these falls. They obviously run well when it rains, even if only briefly. [1 picture]

Twin Trunks – I loved the way the light caught these two trees on either side of the creek bed. [1 picture]

Decimation. The lower ground alongside the creek took quite a beating during the recent rain and this area must have looked very impressive when Woods Fork flooded. [3 pictures]

Easy Hiking. The colors and way that the vines were over-running the trees were asking to be captured. [4 pictures]

Trail Closed. This is the start of ‘The Van Trail’ For a closed trail it gets quite a lot of traffic. [1 picture]
