I didn't start that long ago, so no cool photos. I really like the photos you all have posted, especially the photos of you as a kid or with your kids. My parents certainly were into hiking and definitely not climbing. Maybe in a couple of years I can start taking photos of my son hiking and climbing with me. I wish I would have started when I was younger. Good stuff all!

June 1982 - It took 7 days, but I pedaled my bicycle about 600 miles from Fort Wayne, IN to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so I could finally go see mountains! This picture was taken at Newfound Gap, looking towards western North Carolina. I would end up biking the entire Blue Ridge Parkway, which was a great way to get my first mountain fix. This was part of a 27 day, 2000 mile solo bicycle adventure that pretty much inspired my love for the mountains...and it's appropriate that this picture from 82 was taken where it was, as I have since then started and completed more hikes than I can count at Newfound Gap parking lot.

Camping along the shore of Lake Superior in Gooseberry Falls State Park, June 1983. This was part of a week long bicycle trip along the North Shore of Lake Superior. I was able to get in a number of short hikes on this trip. The waterfalls and cascading rivers in the area are beautiful and make for some easy hiking. <a href=http://www.summitpost.org/album/456945/North-Shore-of-Lake-Superior.html>North Shore of Lake Superior</a>.

I've added these to Sarah's album.

These photos are fantastic. Just a reminder to please post them to the

Back in the Day Album. There are some serious gems in there and they're just getting better.

Thanks,
