My wife after doing this trail!

The first section of trail more or less follows the cascading waters of Road Prong Creek, and crosses several footbridges along the 0.9-mile route to Beech Flats. If you’re hiking during the spring or early summer, look for rhododendron, mountain laurel and many other wildflowers blooming along the trailside during this time period. The trail junction at Beech Flats marks the approximate half-way point for this hike. From here the Road Prong Trail branches off to the left towards the Appalachian Trail at Indian Gap, roughly 2.4 miles away. The Road Prong Trail, which continues to follow the stream of the same name, is one of the oldest trails in the Smokies. In the 18th and 19th centuries this ancient path was commonly known as the Indian Gap Trail.

I attempted to give you a window into my life through the photos! I think I achieved the goal I had for this blog.  I haven’t posted something every day, as I did for he first years.  I have learned a lot from many other bloggers. I appreciate all the comments many of you have made over the years. One thing I would like to improve on, would be the captions for the daily posts, and possibly adding a quote or poem to the photos. I have rarely, if ever had a post without a photo, and it will likely stay that way! Enjoy the next 10 years! 🙂

I thought this would be an appropriate photo, since my wife has faithfully walked by my side, supporting me as I take photos, and blog!! Including walking together on the Highline Trail, near Logan pass in Glacier National Park, Montana this past summer!!
