"A WALK in the WOODS"

2016.02.09

Recently, Larry and I watched a Robert Redford movie called, "A Walk in the Woods" - and it reminded me of this hike we took with his brother Robert and wife Ann to Hawksbill Crag (also called Whitaker Point) in the Buffalo National Wilderness Area.

An elk herd resting after lunch

Fallen leaves and mid-day sun turned this forest above the bluff into a blanket of orange
pixel
We couldn't reach the bottom of this 20-foot waterfall, so I had to settle for the top!
pixel
Some of the interesting rock formations along the cliff's edge
pixel
Teetering on the edge....

One of the small overhangs along the trail
pixel
I asked Ann to give me some perspective on the size of these enormous rocks that have fallen off the bluff above
pixel
Finally....Hawksbill Crag!
pixel
To give it perspective, this is Larry on top of the point
pixel
The top of the crag is actually a large space, but looks narrow from the side!
pixel
pixel
On the other side of the crag is this balanced rock that's large enough to walk through!
pixel
Robert and I sat down farther back from the cliff's edge to take our shots! It's a long drop down....
pixel
The way in and out is very rocky and covered in roots
pixel
pixel
When we went back by the herd, the spring's elk calves were bedded down by their moms
pixel
I take this same picture every time I go by it - the single white sycamore tree with the white bluffs and the green cedar trees on the hill above this field
pixel
It takes about an hour and a half to reach Hawksbill Crag and about 2 hours to walk back out! It is seriously uphill!
