View From The Ridge at the Start of the Pees Hollow Trail. One reason why I prefer fall, winter, and spring to summer is that you can see the views and the ‘bones’ of the land… [1 picture]

It was time to go out on my long awaited backpacking trip with a hammock. Plan ‘A’ was for us to go on a quick, one-night visit to Hercules Glades Wilderness. When Ginger decided she wasn’t going, I quickly came up with Plan ‘B’ which transformed the quick one-nighter into a solo three-day, Friday through Sunday trip. [55 Pictures and lots of words]

Day Hike on the Busiek Yellow Trail. Today we decided to take one of the easier trails, and spend a bit of time looking around. [30 Pictures]

Woods Fork, Busiek. Just below the bridge by the east parking Lot. [2 pictures]

Snack Break. We stopped at the Woods Fork crossing to have a quick break. [4 pictures]

Ginger crossing Woods Fork, and a couple of views of the ridge to the south. [3 pictures.]

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]
