    Went for a nice 30Km Dayhike. Since all Gyms are closed, I try to use the time to hike as much as possible....

    Found a lost or abandoned baby duck yesterday on my walkabout, managed to move it to the pond at the trailhead where some other (well fed) "livin the park life" ducks reside.

    Took out the quad today before the storm comes in.
    Went to try to find an old Indian cave out I. The woods. Not really sure if we found it or not but found a cool well out there and an old fireplace.

    Some kid in a Discovery was crossing back and forth. The pics posted in reverse so start five down and then go up.

Pictures dont do justice of the grades of these .. Its Just back country deer trails and a network of crazy old mtb trails that we dropped down onto to get back to the trailhead eventually.. it was a doubble black diamond so we had to slide down parts on our bums it was so steep but bushwacking the terrain is almost impossible. Found some remains of old trucks and a big kitty scratching post ? Stopped taking pics about halfway up, Honnestly to tired and focused on finding the right way back down to link with our main trailhead to want to at that point . We were racing the clock a bit. Even though we had EVERYTHING needed to stay the night it wasnt our plan. In the end we followed a trail called "bullet dodger" back down its a 5km 400 ish meter descent i believe. You can youtube it and see crazy guys riding the part we took.. back on the trailhead it was a nice stoll back to the truck and as soon as she was buckled in fast asleep. Good exercise is an understatement ! We covered about 15km not sure of our total ascent but it was not easy terrain !

    Buck Bald Mountain and Conasauga Falls, both outside Tellico Plains, TN.
    Great day for a hike and drive to the top of Buck Bald where you can see for miles and miles and miles...all the way to NC.
    No 4X required but some washouts and recent trees cleared.
    Falls were running real hard with all the recent rain. 20200427_115002 (1).jpg

    For the second week we returned to the Cherokee National Forest in SW TN for a day trip of back roads.
    The goal was Coker Creek Falls, but it was not accessible due to a dead fall. I learned a lesson. If you can't get in what are the odds you can't get out? From now on I will carry an electric chainsaw, axe and bow saw. We had no cell service and saw no other vehicles or humans for five hours (a good thing). I do carry gear to overnight out if necessary.
    The Mountain Laurel, some Rhododendron are in bloom.
    There are hundreds of miles of trails both 4X and hiking. The John Muir Trail runs 21 miles along the Hiawassee River.
    A couple of dispersed campsites along the way. Beautiful area.

    Been busy taking care of the garden, making supply runs for the folks and me.
    Finally got the chance to weed/fertilize the citrus.

    No grapefruit yet
    Myers lemon, standard orange, Paige orange, navel orange, and a tangerine grown from seed. Eventually plan to add a grapefruit and lime trees.
