Remember a few months ago when snow spoiled my plans to climb Mt. Leconte in The Smokies? Well, I decided it was finally time to go back and conquer the mountain! I reserved the hotel, made the 4 and a half hour drive down to Tennessee and prepared to complete the hike the following day, which was Saturday.Read More
This past Saturday I came up with a concept for a new adventure: see how many of Kentucky’s waterfalls I could squeeze into one blitz roadtrip. I started researching some possible destinations and discovered that my home state is just full of waterfalls! I mapped out 7 waterfalls that I felt I could reasonably visit in one day. I did anticipate that I would probably have to skip one or two, however, as this trip included over 9 hours of just driving! In the end, I was able to hit up 5 of the 7 falls.
Not half bad for a single day trip!Read More
I suppose you could say I’m a bit of a spontaneous guy. I tend to come up with ideas at the last minute and just sort of act on them. Some of my best adventures have been the result of coming up with an idea, grabbing a pack and just going. This trip was one of those spur-of-the-moment ideas. The plan was simple, drive to Red River Gorge, hike onto Auxier Ridge, and photograph the sunset. How hard could that be?!Read More

This past Saturday (April 4, 2015) I did a 17-mile hike through the heart of Kentucky’s Red River Gorge. This trip was originally meant to be a 2-day adventure, but that’s not quite how things worked out. The trip presented its own set of challenges, but at the end of the day it was a great time. This post will outline the 17-mile adventure.
