Twin Falls Dropping into Georgia's Mountains - Anna Ruby Falls


A_DAY_AT_ANNA_RUBY_FALLS_2017_12.JPG

Anna Ruby Falls is located in north Georgia at a state park called Unicoi. The bigger of the falls (Curtis Creek) is 153 feet. The smaller of the falls (York Creek) is 50 feet. Together with the rock formations and the mini falls in front of it, they represent awesome natural beauty.

The Mighty Amicalola Falls


A_DAY_AT_AMICALOLA_FALLS_2017_15.JPG

At 729 Feet, it's the biggest waterfall in the East. Nestled in the mountains of northern Georgia, Amicalola is far more impressive than you would expect for a waterfall that has over 4 times the height of Niagara, but far fewer guests (guess there's no tourist industry when it's just "Nature" that you're selling). That's fine by me. If you're ever in the Deep South, check it out.

The hotel Heather and I stayed at in Mexico. Their violinist and up-scale restaurant were awesome (he even played Dust in the Wind). The beach was fantastic, and the water was beautifully colored as well. The food was pretty good for buffet, too. The only drawbacks were people could bring kids and everyone saw Americans as dollar signs. That gets old quick.

Sandals Grande Riviera - It's Not Woodland Beach Delaware!


a_week_in_Jamaica_2012_2013_207.jpg

All inclusive luxury Caribbean Style! Oh, to be back on Island Time, mon! Our resort was in Ocho Rios, which is where Mick Jagger has a house. It's about an hour and a half east of Montego Bay on the coast, and may I say, it was a great way to waste our time doing pretty much nothing of consequence other than pool, beach, eat, drink, be entertained, and meander around the flowers (save a side trip to Dunn River Falls). How else could we possibly unwind out of 2012 and move into the new year of 2013?!!

Ice Box Canyon Rescue: A Level of Toughness Aron Ralston Could Appreciate


ice_box_canyon_rescue-069.jpg

What started as a part day trip to Red Rock Canyon Nevada ended up being a full day excursion to get out of Icebox Canyon after Heather wrecked her knee on a descent in the slot canyon. Fortunately, our first help was search and rescue trainer Don Lester and his wife Theresa who just happens to be an RN. There were others too - Las Vegas Metro Police.... Clark County Fire Dept.... an Army guy and his friend.... the girl who offered her shirt to be used as ties for the splint. We owe you many thanks, but it's also important to say how tough Heather was to get out to the stretcher.... 2 miles and 5.5 hours later while descending and ascending bouldered paths in 80° weather.

Star Wars Exhibit at the Franklin Institute


franklin_institute_star_wars_2.jpg

As anyone with taste in movies knows, Revenge of the Sith is the best movie ever, and while the latter trilogy is often disregarded by purists (for Jar Jar, the Gungans, and the kiddie faux Nascar feel of the pod races), I actually find the latter movies better than the original 3 better than Empire and Return. The original Star Wars is still 2nd on the list. Anyway, this is the complete collection of photos from the traveling technology exhibit.

Scott Brown http://www.stackpolebooks.com/contributorinfo.cfm?ContribID=13 (he of the guidebooks) says this is the best view in all of PA. It's either this or the Throne Room for me. There's a lot to fall in love with up here. The steep hike is challenging and it literally feels like it goes off the map at points. In the end, the view with all of the surrounding valleys is all intensive. The question is what do you want in your view? There's a lot of farms and roads and businesses in this view. In the main view of the Throne Room, it's more mountains. Really, it's a toss up.

Thee Overnight Trip on the Standing Stone Trail: Through Midlife's Butt Kicking


standing_stone_trail_overnight_hike_71.jpg

What was meant to be 72 miles and 6 days ended up just under 20 and 2 days. From the blisters on my feet to drinking too much water and not being able to eat, I got whooped by day 2. The phone call went out at 2 and I got to Meadow Gap to be rescued by my trail angel at 730. That said, from April's hiking beginnings at Angel Falls to less than 4 months later, I was able to haul a huge 50+ pound pack over rocks and up hills with more "skill" than I ever had before. While I failed to make it, I still won by giving it my all and creating a benchmark to beat.

Journeys to Bear Rocks, Knife's Edge, and Bake Oven Knob


bear_rocks_dad.jpg

Just off of the Appalachian Trail exists the wall of stone that is Bear Rocks. Dropping 80 feet on the other side, there are plenty of great adventures to be had if only a person walks in the mile or so to it. IF YOU KEEP GOING BEYOND THIS, you will eventually come to the even steeper Knife's Edge, which affords viewers a chance to see the front side of the mountain valley. A quarter of a mile in the other direction is Bake Oven Knob, which is also featured here, where a person can see the front side of the valley as well. Bear Rocks is all about the back valley.

pinnacle_spring_2009_45.jpg

While the Pinnacle is regarded as one of the best hikes in the local area, we got an extra special treat - the chirping and ribbiting of frogs as they called out for some fine Barry White style bullfrog lovin. I don't think we'll ever see it again, so for that, I'm glad I have the pictures to prove that we were there for it (something like that).

Fall Leaves and Water Lilies: French Creek State Park


french_creek_state_park_2011_summer_1.jpg

There are some good things to see at French Creek. A loop trail around the lake and a trail up the mountain that really isn't that long. Also, there is frisbee golf. Other than that, nothing else comes to mind. Sorry.

The Extremest of Hikes - Going to See the Incerdible Grandeur at Sullivan Run


sullivan_falls_fall_1.jpg

Sullivan Falls, Pigeon Falls, Bear Run Falls, and a lot of nameless little falls on Sullivan Run, which is a beautiful but scrambling around the sides trail right next to Ricketts Glen. It is beautiful, but be prepared to go belly button deep or through the brush to move through the creek above Sullivan Falls. This was described as Ricketts Glen before the trails went in, which is sort of true, but it's hard to be that awesome. Still, worth a trip if you go to Sullivan / Luzerne County for the weekend.

You Ain't Seen Nothing Like the Mighty Quinn Run


a_day_at_heberly_run_and_beyond_71.jpg

Thank you very much to Lakeland for showing me the land beyond Heberly Run, which features some small, but really cool waterfalls that you must ascend and descend to see (like Sullivan Run). A Very good day indeed!

Muddy Journey off the Beaten Path to Heberly Run


heberly_run_2009_4.jpg

The rougher side of Sullivan Run (at least for cars) was a journey through mud and bogs on an ealry fall day in 2009. More photos will follow when the weather improves and we can feel warm while treking through the water to get to Big Falls and Lewis Falls. Until then, here is Upper and Lower Twin Falls.

Heather's first trip to Ricketts Glen in Winter


another_great_winter_trip_to_ricketts_glen_2015_with_heather_-037.JPG

So many great pictures from so many great photographers! Enjoy. Heather kicked butt on 16 foot Murray Reynolds and getting up about 30 feet to the ice cave in the top section of 36 foot Sheldon Reynolds. A great hike! Thanks for teaching, patience, and drive, Ben Nevin, who is a great climbing instructor / guide.

My Return to Ricketts Glen in Winter


ricketts_glen_winter_2014_1.jpg

Once, I never thought I would go back. I sold my ice axe and crampons after getting life insurance and getting rattled at the prospect of a rescue to pull out a young girl who went in unprepared (that could be me?!). Nevertheless, I rebought gear and went in with Steve D. and we conquered the top 4 falls on both sides. The ice was super sweet, and it was a great hike. I can't wait to go back!

Ricketts Glen Winter - 2008 and Before


2007_winter_ricketts_dan_at_b_reynolds.JPG

The best time to see my favorite PA site to visit. Ricketts Glen - 22 waterfalls of size over a 7.2 mile loop in beautiful Sullivan County. All the same, ALL winter journeys are over for this married man, but if you have questions about what you want to see, just ask. That said, my crampons and ice ax have been sold, so gone are the days of venturing into the extreme and the icy.

Ricketts Glen Fall


sullivan_run_2009_21.jpg

Fall is also a great time to be amongst the waterfalls though there isn't much foliage colors to be seen except when you're entering into the woodlands. That said, there are still a healthy mix of colors here and ther that definitely make it worth your while.

What Used to be Be the Greatest of Days: Ricketts Glen in Spring and Summer


ricketts_glen_spring_2009_124.jpg

Spring is great for Ricketts because the greens are so electric. Summer can be really hot and often, there isn't much water coming down through. Rainy mornings are the best. If only I could win Powerball and end up living near there permanently, I would be a very happy person.
