    Great pics. I have got to quit procrastinating and do a trip there.

    Great Pics! Savage Gulf is one of my favorite hiking spots.

    JEEEEEEEZ. Talk about some major elevation gains and losses in this place. I forgot my hiking poles, and the descent from Stone Door was pretty rough. Then all the boulder hopping too. But that elevation gain from the bottom of the gulf to the top was intense! My legs were smoked when I got to the top. Then I pretty much ran(where I could) to Greeter Falls to beat the dark. Whew! The Greeter Falls trail reminded me a lot of the movie Last of the Mohicans.

    I have read advice to turn a battery around so this won't happen. (But I've never done it myself!)

    Great pics and a great place. Have been there several times. It's a jewel in Tennessee. Thanks for sharing!

    I think from now on I'll just take them out until I get to where I'm going. I agree, this place is amazing and I can't wait to get back and check out the rest.
