    Laurel-Snow Natural Area

    Got out today to enjoy the beautiful spring weather. We're well ahead of most years in terms of blooms and plants leafing out. I wanted to see some wildflowers and get out for what will be my only day off in the next couple of weeks. So I took a day hike up in the Laurel-Snow State Natural Area near Dayton, TN. It's a great hike along a beautiful river, and then you climb the Cumberland Plateau for some spectacular views overlooking the Tennessee River Valley. I found a nice overlook at which to hang, eat lunch and just relax. Had to adjust my suspension to make it work between some closely spaced trees, but this was just the place that it had to be today. I ended up taking off my soft shackles and bypassing the continuous loop and larksheading the whoopies directly to the hammock; it was tight, but made it work. I'm going to try to post some pics (this is new for me, so we'll see how it goes). Hope it works and hope you enjoy.

    Only thing I see wrong with this is that I wasn't there with you. Outstanding views, I can only imagine how spectacular it was to actually be there. I don't know when, but this I have to see myself. Thanks for the pics.

    I'm heading to Laurel Snow Falls next weekend. Looking forward to a great weekend in the woods. Also planning to hit Piney River which is 45 minutes north. Glad to hear you enjoyed the trip.
