Smoky Mountain Hiking Trip (pics)


OK, I know this is my final taper week prior to the Space Coast Marathon and all, but it was also a 4 day weekend due to Thanksgiving.  So when my wife said we should do something special over the long weekend I was all for it. However, I did not think we would have such a strenuous get away. (3 hikes totalling 12.41 miles with 1,300 feet of climb each, at a 20:50 pace)

NOTE: Honestly it is not my wife’s fault. She just said we should go do something, and it was my idea to do the Smoky Mountains. I really enjoy hiking, and love getting out there with nature. So off we went.

This was a great trip, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away. I was also surprised at how inexpensive it is to take trips like this.

Oh, and I managed to leave the Nikon at home.  So all of these images were taken with my Android phone. It worked great, though not as crisp as the Nikon would have gotten.

Hope you enjoyed the pics.

    I’m scared to hike. I don’t want to have to cut my own arm off. I hear that happens…
