Sand Run Falls in Pa. It was my wife's first time out and it's one of the few pics I have of myself as I am usually alone.

I finally got around to loading in an avatar. Mine is of myself standing on top of Shining Rock in SR Wilderness Area, NC taken by my buddy. No real significance to the pic other than this is probably the only time other than 1 other time that I have been on top of SR where it was sunny with blue sky.

School House Falls in Panthertown Valley, NC

This area is known as the Yosemite of the East.

We had dinner near the falls on a Friday night and you could see more stars in the open sky than I've ever seen anywhere. Quite stunning.

First trip to Yosemite on 08/25/2007 16:29:30 MDT Print View

Mine is from our first trip to Yosemite and to the Sierra.

The trip was in late April of 2005. We flew into Fresno, spent three days in Sequoia in a little cabin and then three days in Yosemite in the little motel in Curry Village. We snoshoed and dayhiked in Sequoia and Dayhiked every day in Yosemite.

It was an unforgettable experience and definately one of our favorite vacations.

We're going back the first week of June and taking my parents who have never been.

Steve

(A) Bored.
(B) Playing with iPhoto.
(C) Didn't really have any cool outdoor photos that would fit as avatars.
(D) All of the above.

@Beserker, @simplespirit - SRW and PV are on my list of "must see" spots. I'm about 4-5 hours south so NC/TN are our usual weekend getaways. There's so much to see in western NC, it's just amazing. Hopefully, I will actually be exploring one of these in November. :)

My current avatar is the result of a coworker, a camera phone, the perceived need for a pic of myself for internet useage, and way to much free time. :)

Well I dont know how long I will keep this one. Meet Ivor Iversen. He was an artic explorer that pretty much woke up on the wrong side of the bed for 2 overwinterings of Greenland. On a disastrous Danish expedition in Greenland, driven by the knowledge that Peary said there was a "channel" splitting Greenland, (Yay Sensationalist American Explorers!) Ivor and a man named Ejnar Mikkelsen went to search for the remains of the ill fated team from their basecamp, but then their rescue ship sunk and for two winters they stayed unrescued and driven basically to insanity. Which leads me to my suggested next project for Ryan Jordan and Andrew Skurka...

White Mountains New Hampshire.

A ledge on Hedgehog Mtn. with Mt. Passaconway in the background, obviously in the Fall.

It's a small mountain with spectacular views. The trail, UNC Trail, is a 3 mile loop south from the Kancamagus Hwy. with the trailhead about half way between Lincoln and Conway. Many other trails, including x-country ski trails, branch out from this trailhead.
