The Land That Time Forgot
My primary hiking and photography interest this past fall was the area around the Rockcastle River. On multiple hikes I covered the beautiful area from Bee Rock to over six river miles upstream. I hiked both the east bank and the west bank. At one point I looked up to see a beautiful rock cliff face. There seemed to be a decent view of the river and the forest from on top. I thought, "I've got to find a way to get up there." What followed was an off trail hike partially through rhododendron thickets, brushing past prickly holly trees, getting tangled up in briers, and climbing over fallen trees. Along the way I came into contact with seemingly every tiny creature who's sole purpose in life is to cause people's skin to develop insanely itchy red bumps. Of course I couldn't wait to go back for more after the fall colors were on display! It was well worth the wait and the effort, especially after I refined my route.
