South Valley Reflection



South Valley Reflection

 Several inches of snow fall add to the mystic reflections of red sandstone in South Valley Park.   The park is located west of Ken Caryl, Colorado with over 8 miles of trails.   The area shows evidence of inhabitants occupying the South Valley thousands of years before the Pyramids of Egypt were built, and more recently  provided shelter for early Native Americans.

Trail Less Traveled



The creek that follows the Laurel Fork Trail in Hampton, Tennessee. The uniqueness of the trail is that you hike through about 25 creek crossings with small waterfalls around them. Our hiking boots are still wet!

Doe River Gorge Trestle

In the early 1880s the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC) built a line from Johnson City, TN to Cranberry, NC.   The steep, narrow Doe River Gorge was chosen for part of the route, and after heavy blasting through the cliffside and then filling and bridge-building operations, a narrow gauge track opened in 1882, “hugging narrow ledges, squeezing through tight tunnels and crossing the river several times.”   The is one of those crossings.  the steel of the trestle is still intact, but much of the wood is long gone.

Sunrise over Signal Mountain

As the sun rises it baths the Teton Range and valley in a swath of golden hues.

As the sun rises it baths the Tetons and valley in a swath of golden hues.

I recall getting up about 5A.M. that morning to catch this sunrise. Driving the few miles from Jackson Lake Lodge to Signal Mountain in the dark seemed to take hours as I was being ever cautious of the elk that like to hang out on the road.

My arrival at the summit was met with solitude as not many would care to venture out in the brisk coolness of the morning.  Those that did were probably at more obvious scenic points like Ox Bow Bend, or the overlook at Snake River.

Signal Mountain has the most spectacular views of the Tetons and valley that you could image.    It only rises a mere 500ft or so from the surrounding valley floor, but gives you the sense that you are eye level with the Tetons and an open panoramic of the landscape around you.

As most of you know, Wyoming and more specifically the Jackson/Teton area is a special place for us.  We dream of living there, and are already planning our wedding there.  We look forward to the day when we can explore more of this area along with other parts of the country.
