Great Smoky Mountains National Park

No visit to the Southeast is complete without visiting the America’s most popular national park, the Great Smoky Mountains. You heard me right. The Great Smoky Mountains, straddling the boarder of Tennessee and North Carolina  is our nations most popular national park amassing around ten million visitors a year!

Before heading back to Sonoran Desert for more west coast exploring, I wanted to hit up a few of my favorite parts of the park including Clingman’s Dome and Cades Cove. I’ve posted more info on this park before, so I’ll just say that the day started off sunny, but afternoon rain moved in while I was at Clingman’s Dome, the highest elevation in the park. Take a look at the pics!

Hieroglyphic Canyon Trail

My Subaruing adventure this weekend took me to popular Hieroglyphic Canyon Trail in the Tonto National Forest near Apache Junction, AZ.  I visited and hiked with a great group of guys and gals from a local meet up group. There were about twenty of us. We arrived at the trailhead around 10AM and the weather was perfect!

I had a lot of fun on this hike. The trail is rugged and rocky, yet is easily traversed. Towards the end, there are thousands of ancient Indian petroglyphs. If you’re in the area, have some time and are looking for an enjoyable short hike, I’d recommend it!
