While at college, I lived near the Smoky Mountains. During the four years I was there, I had the chance to get out and see the mountains, although not nearly as much as I would have liked to, school tends to get in the way of those plans.
Here's John after one of our trips kayaking. In this case, we went to the Pigeon River, about an hour from Knoxville. We went several other times, but getting pictures is kind of hard since I don't have a waterproof camera.
This is at Ozone Falls in Tennessee. It really is a strange feeling to walk over the side of a cliff. If you ever get the chance, you really should try it. This is called Aussie style. Much more exciting than the normal way.
Here I am half way down the Ozone Falls' rapel. This is the the traditional way of rapelling.
