Thank you for reminding me how beautiful that area can be and glad you made it out of there!!!!!!!!
WhooBuddy, I'm with you on that BBG, that was also my first ever Sipsey trip (and I only live about 90 miles from there)!
That first snow covered experience, camped just a very short distance from the ROARING Fall Creek Falls, will always rate as one of my most memorable trips. For one thing, it was just so much more than I expected on an AL hike.
On my last trip to FC Falls, during the drought and fire ban of last fall, it was not roaring and in fact was just barely a trickle. Still, it was a fun trip. It was my Grandson's (age 9) 1st hike in overnight backpack.
And thanks to Angrysparrow, Thomas and Skippy ( who am I forgetting? ) for introducing us to that (nearby for me) AL treasure!
