Uncle Tom’s Trail

Uncle Tom’s Trail had been closed for about a year. It was due to open in July of 2018, but it took until October. With only a small window before it would close again for winter I rushed out to complete the trail.

And this is the reason for all the signs! Amicalola Falls strikes back….

Uncle Tom’s trail states 328 steps and Amicalola Falls states 425. When Janet and I went to Amicalola Falls I wasn’t in any kind of fitness state. Before going I wolfed down a large Frappuccino from Starbuck and a Chick-fil-A meal. By the time I dragged myself back up the stairs I thought I was going to die. I was exhausted and sick. The rest of the evening was shot for me. I sit in the passenger seat with the window down trying to keep from getting sick while Janet drove.

This go round was cake. I didn’t run the stairs or anything like that, but I didn’t think I was going to die either.



Something else out here with me. Coyote maybe?

A view from the other side of the water fall.

A better view of the stairs.

Real snow today

What is all the white stuff outside and why is it cold? Why is the human going out in this?

Not much snow at the house.

More where I was hiking at rescue trail.

I never knew there was a lake over there. I also found a sign, but couldn’t read it because it was only on one side. When I made it to the side it said to not go past the sign. I was walking where I wasn’t supposed to be.

Scared a few big horn sheep.

Found a few tracks.

Few elk hanging around work.

Few more waiting on me when I got home.

This was also the day where the battery in the BMW could take no more and died. The jump box I had worked for one jump and I had to get another from a coworker. Got the car home and will have to get another battery. Another car part adventure awaits. I have never changed a battery myself and this one in in the back to add to the fun.
