    [QUOTE=glbeas]It figures...

    From the looks of the map the trails a good three or four miles downhill. We opted out of that consifdering the lateness of the day and the heat. Map said the round trip hike was five hours. QUOTE]

    You made a good choice, Gary. I haven't made the trip yet, but a good friend who is a serious hiker made the trip, and he said it was an a**-busting 10-12 mile round trip.

    Bill, I'm no expert on the Sloss situation. It seems to me, though, that unless there are prominently placed signs explaining their policy, I'll take photos and use them as I see fit. I've never seen any such signage; has anyone else?

    Doug, I have not been back since we all were there last, so I have not seen signs and I do not believe the policy was on their web site before. If I am near there, I may just drop by to see.

    What would you all think of doing the Air Museum as a get together sometime soon? It's a great place to do abstracts of aircraft metal.

Theres two parking spots, the first has an image of a horse on it, the second has a hiker icon on it, thats the one you want. From the looks of the map the trails a good three or four miles downhill. We opted out of that consifdering the lateness of the day and the heat. Map said the round trip hike was five hours. Afterward we drove to Little River Canyon and got a few frames off on the 8x10. We just got back a short while ago.

    Still stumbling around in cave country? I hiked down the escarpment from the highway into Walls of Jericho. It is a pretty cool place. large TAG limestone canyon that has been hollowed out into a large bowl shaped area that kind of looks like an amphitheatre. I saved time by hiking down the mountain from the east, but I dropped over 1500' in elevation. Not fun hiking back up with large format gear! I got some pics, but you really must have something very wide angle to capture the place properly.

    How bout a trip down to S. Georgia? Maybe Okeefenokee, or somewhere along the coast? It would probably be an overnighter for us Atlanta folk, but might be fun.

    There is a large format group that is down in Florida- maybe we could plan to meet them half way!

    I've done Jekyll before, great for the driftwood beaches but takes a long time to get there. You know any other good places to shoot down south?

    We can pin that to the board and see who bites. I'll be up for it, it's a good excuse to see my brother who live at Warner Robins.
    BTW anyone from far out needs an overnight stop to make the get together we have a spare bedroom to lend.
