2010 Adventures



...the year in review...
January brought the coldest weather in years, and I spent two days with Jay Hudson and others on a waterfall tour in Sipsey and Bankhead to see fantastic ice formations. I'd camp much later in the year on my first solo backpacking trip at Parker Falls. Closer to home, I found a slice of Sipsey nestled in Mckay Hollow at Monte Sano State Park, home of the Devil's Well. Fall would bring the first of an annual series of trips to the backwaters of Lake Guntersville at Bucks Pocket State Park.
