I REALLY like the picture below the continental divide sign. Looks like a beautiful water color (OK, I guess it really is!!)

What kind of camera is that on the tripod?

Looks like we have the same basic truck. How is it doing? Any more to that story?

With it being 300 miles home, we decide on Thursday to start heading home. May have stayed another day, but rain was in the forecast and we were tired of the fog. Seems like with the truck running great again, the shortest way isn't possible.

Just what are you trying to hide there, anyway? You got some tall mountains back east you don't want to share with us westerners, huh? [emoticon]

Looks like a great trip, and I'm sure you are relieved to have the mechanical issues behind you. Thanks for sharing.

jmtandem; noxinnho, Camper_Jeff_&_Kelli, Markiemark32, and TraciK - thanks for the kind words. Glad y'all enjoyed it.

CueSee - I've only done a few miles here and there on the AT and at my age, I'm liking the soft bed too much to do overnights.

silversand - the time lapse was taken one frame each 6 seconds then played back at 15 fps. It's really amazing the different perspective playing it back where you can really tell the cloud movement.

the tc life - you sure would have enjoyed the few days then, there were lots of clouds every day.

BradW - Yep, officially known as the Shining Rock Wilderness Area parking lot. As a kid, back when it was a gravel road and parking lot, we would back the Franklin 11' back up to the trees. We always called it "Cold Mountain" because I can't remember a time as a kid when we didn't get at least a dusting of snow one night.

dadwolf2 - That was down in GA at the upper end of Seed Lake. Went around the corner and caught the view out of the corner of my eye. Scared Linda when I slammed on the brakes and backed up to find a place to pull over. Definitely one of the better shots of the trip. I'll drop you an email about the issues with the truck.

seldomseensmith - More a case of embarrassment on what we call mountains. [emoticon] Actually, it is a GeoCache Earth cache we were doing. Earth cache teaches folks about the natural things in the area.

I see you're having fun with the new camera. Nice trip report. At least temps were above freezing this time. Remember the time we were up there with the Franklin and the fog had encased all the bushes on top of the mtn in ice? We've referred to it as "Cold Mtn" ever since [emoticon] And that reminds me ... when are we going to return to Frozen Head?
