    40 miles on the AT with WBBB

    Last weekend I hiked a 40 mile section of the AT (32+8 approach, technically) from Amicalola to Springer to Neels Gap. Both nights I found a fantastic spot to hang - blew myself away with how perfect the spots were, both times.

    Trip report is here: (spread out over 3 or 4 posts, click "Newer Post"):

    Night 1: camped next to a roaring waterfall Long Creek Falls:


    Night 2: on top of Big Cedar Mountain:

    Very nice shots. That spot by the falls is where I hung a hammock for the very first time 4 years ago on the Benton MacKaye Trail. It instantly brought back a lot of memories.

    Beautiful!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    3rd picture - the hammock looks pretty high up or is that an illusion or am I drinking?

    Incredible spots! Thanks for the pics.
    I bet it was hard to pack up and leave.

    Great pics, what tarp are you using (& size)?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    That's a great section. Looks way different from what I saw in January.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
