2003 Adventures

...the year in review...
My interest in biking and exploring the history of the old railroad beds that make up the Chief Ladiga Trail would lead to some interesting discoveries this year, from an open to the public cave in Weaver, AL, to trekking through the woods in Tredegar, AL finding old smelting plant ruins and a dummy rail. I'd finally get to photograph the Canyon Mouth Park at Little River Canyon, a place we visited many times growing up, and later take a trip to Georgia for my first out of state hike at Anna Ruby Falls. Clarence and I would cap of the year with a long hike on a part of the Pinhoti Trail we'd seen last year, pushing on to watch the sunset over Piedmont from the west flank of Augusta Mine Ridge.
