2011 Trip Reports
We led a group of friends to Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia and Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland.
We led a group of hikers to the top of Seneca Rocks in West Virginia.
We hiked The Big Schloss on a chilly fall day.
On 11/12/11 we hiked to the summit of Strickler Knob, 2,780' up in the George Washington National Forest near Luray, Virginia.
We hiked to the Kilgore Falls waterfall in the Falling Branch Area of the Rock State Park in Harford County, MD to check out the fall color at the waterfall.
I hiked to the summit of Dunkin Knob in the George Washington National Forest near Luray, Virginia on my way home from a camping trip in Shenandoah National Park.
We decided to hike down to Dark Hollow Falls while camping in Shenandoah National Park.
While camping in Shenandoah National Park, I took a day hike to Strickler Knob in the Lee Ranger District of the George Washington National Forest.
A trip to hike the Long Canyon Rim Trail in the Roaring Plains gets rained out.
After a long day that included driving the Tioga Pass and hiking Lembert Dome in Yosemite National Park, we ended up at the Devils Postpile.
Holly and I were driving the Tioga Pass and we stopped to hike the 9,450' Lembert Dome.
The giant sequoia trees in Yosemite are truly a sight to see.
If you can only do one hike in Yosemite, make it this one.
Don't go to Yosemite National Park without driving to Glacier Point. You'll be rewarded with views from almost 4,000' above the Yosemite valley floor.
Holly and I were humbled by the massive giant sequoia trees along the Congress Trail in Sequoia National Park. This is a 2 mile loop that feels like more due to the altitude (7,000'). If you only have a few hours in the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, this is how to spend them.
Holly and I hiked to Hanging Rock to take pictures of Moro Rock in the sunset, then climbed to the top of Moro Rock.
While driving home from the Roaring Plains, Holly and I stopped in at the Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia and Swallow falls State Park in Maryland
We attempted to summit Mount Porte Crayon, the tallest peak in the Roaring Plains area of the Monogahela National Forest, then hike over to Haystack Knob to camp for the night. Did we make it?
Holly and I left Baltimore at 2am on a freezing cold March morning and hiked through sunrise to Hoye Crest, the highest point in the state of Maryland.
