    pre Christmas overnight on the pine mountain trail

    I just got back from a quick overnight trip to the pine mountain trail at warm springs GA. My kids were in school Monday and Tuesday, I was off, so I decided to take a little hiking trip. The Pine Mountain trail is only 45 min from my house, so its really quick and easy to get to-------Ive been there hundreds of times! I parked at the roadside park/radio tower trailhead, and hiked to browndog bluff---about 6 miles away. Its was a beautiful day, 50 degrees and sunny---I didnt bring shorts, but if I had, I would have worn them! I took my time and had a delightful hike thru the south ga woods. I spent the night at browndog, and then hiked back to the trail head via the white candle trail. What was really neat was, last night I was laying in my hammock, watching the sun go down (beautiful sun set!) and shortly after was enjoying a full moon! ----I thought to my self, does it really get any better than this? It got down into the low 40s last night , but I was snug and warm in my peapod! As I was driving back to the house this after noon, it struck me how peaceful I felt, and that I definitely got my "wilderness fix"! I really seem to enjoy winter camping---its just got a different feel to it than summer camping (especially in GA--it gets pretty freaking hot!) Sorry, no pics----maybe next time! also, I used a backpack I have been designing/working on---it needs a few changes, but over all I was very happy with its performance!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
