We made it through the overgrowth, but not yet past the unrelenting steep climb. There's a reason I'm photographing the top of Tipi's head and it's not because he's bending over. It's because I'm this steeply above him on the climb.
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, first aid, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
