Friday

Todd and I on Kephart:





A little bit of spotting:



Old 33:



An old bridge used to exist here. You can see the remains of the wall at the left side of the stream:



Checking out the Dry River crossing:







(Videos of that coming later)

Then we met up with a few more guys. This is on the way to the trail head on Rt. 33. Picture out the back window:



On the trails:

Extreme wide lens from the navigator seat:



This looks fun! (Video coming later)



Meadow knob campsite:







That's a selection of the best pictures I have from Friday. I'd like to thank my buddy Cole for taking most of those great shots!

More to come!

wish there was a TNWORE.

I can't wait til the Bilstein HD's arrive.
Then the TB gets a "facelift!"
