Went with my son's Boy Scout troop hiking in the SC/NC foothills trail.

Was pretty rough in some spots, but the views were beautiful. Only have a few pictures that I can share here (BSA policy. Most of my pictures are of the scouts and for the parents only). But I do have a few I thought I would share here that are just scenery:

Trail head we started on:



The river we camped by:



Mount Sassafras:



The river this morning. It was COLD! Got down to around 36 - 38 deg F:

Sorry, I'm going to complain. I still pretend it's a free country.

You have one of the trail head I'm guessing, one far away shot of Mt. Sassafras and the other two are essential the same picture.

I come home with at least fifty to a hundred pictures even when just hiking locally. Do you have any more to share that you took along the way? I really do like them but they left me intrigued and wanting to see more.

Beautiful scenery, miss the scouts.

Best of times.

Love that part of the country. Hang your food in a tree to keep black bears out of it and watch out for rattle snakes.
Great trout fishing.

I am fortunate enough to see these everyday of my life. When I top the hill leaving my home, I see that same exact mountain range in it's full beauty as the sun sets and rises over it.

I often forget they are even there as I have seen them everyday since I was born. But they are beautiful and people do come from all over just to see them, walk through them, and stay for the slower pace for just a bit.

Thanks for the share and the reminder.

It's okay, I do have some more that I can post, and will a little bit later. I was falling asleep as I was trying to make this thread (the hike was a bit hard on me). I'll post more in a bit.

Again, I apologies for the few pictures in the OP as I fell asleep while trying to post, heh. Hike was pretty hard on me. Here are a LOT more pics, split up into two more posts:
