Cumberland Trail adventure

Big pack
Originally uploaded by TheTurducken
Day 1: We start the Smoky Mountain segment of the Cumberland Trail later than intended. It's pretty strenuous. We have to camp before we reach our intended campsite. We camp at Duncan Falls, which is pretty - although frozen. Instead of the low being the promised 20-something, it reaches 9F, plus wind. We all go to bed early to stay warm.

Day 2: Due to the mileage and strenuousness, plotted against our capabilities, we opt to head back to the car.

Day 3: Coming soon ...

(This photo is from Day 2, which was somewhat warmer, and I had put my extra layers in my pack, making it very tall.)
