Wet, Foggy and Alone  Sucess!

In fast moving, drizzly clouds all day that eliminated all views. Somehow avoided the 300 people that we later found on Black Balsam.

Worth It  Sucess!

Hiked this with wife and some teens from youth group. Came up from Big East to Greasy ridge trail to Art Loeb. This was a side trip for lunch before heading to Shining Rock to camp.

This is the 2nd time I've been here but the 1st time with my wife and that made it extra special.

In a Cloud  Sucess!

By the time my girlfriend and I got to this peak, we were inside a cloud and it was lightly misting. We ate lunch and then I proposed to her while sitting on the summit rocks. It was wet and chilly but a memorable time.

Via Art Loeb  Sucess!

Climbed 8 peaks in my first trip to the Blue Ridge & Smokies. Tennent and Sam Knob offered the best views of any. Will definitely return to climb some more of the "Southern Sixers" and lesser peaks. Fun!

Art Loeb Trail  Sucess!

Great views from the top! One of the better peaks I have seen in NC.

Horrible weather  Sucess!

After pitching my tent in freezing rain the night before: temps hovering at freezing; dense fog/cloud creating 100% humidity levels; driving wind. Some have said the views resemble something from New England-- couldn't tell ya since I could only see 20 feet. Perhaps this was a good description of New England weather?

via Art Loeb trail  Sucess!

coming from Daniel Boone camp and Cold Mountain (split between two days) This part of the trail is much easier than that beginning at Deep Gap.

Along with Black Balsam Knob, Grassy Cove Top, and Shining Rock  Sucess!

I was very thankful that this mountain had a sign on its summit so that you knew for sure you were there.
