Grizzly Encounter on Yellowstone's Avalanche Peak - 0 views

  •  
    One of our prime hiking destinations for the week was a climb up 10,566-foot Avalanche Peak, located about eight miles from the park's east entrance. We put this hike at the top of our itinerary because it's one of the higher peaks in Yellowstone, and it didn't require any technical skills to reach the summit.

Hiking the Grand Canyon: Rim to Rim - 0 views

  •  
    For many hikers, a "bucket list" or "life list" just wouldn't be complete unless it included a rim to rim hike across the Grand Canyon. I was fortunate enough to do just that over the Memorial Day weekend in 1996 with three fellow hikers.

Hike to Mt. Rogers in Virginia - 0 views

  •  
    Nearly the entire length of the four-mile (one-way) hike to the summit of Mt. Rogers passes through open country, offering sweeping views of the surrounding wilderness as far as the eye can see. With the rocky outcroppings and the open views, it seems more like hiking in some places out west rather than in the Appalachian Mountains.

Hike to good ole' Rocky Top in the Smoky Mountains! - 0 views

    Yes, this is the same Rocky Top that inspired the famous lyrics that is now the fight song for the Univ of Tennessee. This hike is one of the best hikes in the Smokies, especially if you hit the trail in June when the mountain laurel is on full display at Spence Field. Make sure to watch the video.
