I desire to experience all that God created. Vocalist/Guitarist. Adventurer of distant lands.

Took 5 of my best friends on their first backpacking trip here. It's a great beginner trip but still fun and engaging for experienced backpackers. Highly recommend.

Clingman's Dome is awesome! The view at the top is phenomenal and offers a great look over the land. It is a fairly easy hike but is pretty steep all the way up.

Bring your camera because Big Bluff is incredible. I definitely recommend bringing trekking poles and water for this hike. It can be steep and very rocky at some points.

Great hike with some awesome views. Bring a friend to enjoy your time there!

Absolutely beautiful drive! Definitely recommend a vehicle with 4-WD if you want to drive the entire road. There are a lot of great photo ops along the way so bring a camera!

Really great trail and awesome views throughout. I hiked this in the middle of a downpour and it got pretty slick at some points. Definitely recommend good hiking boots and a waterproof jacket.

Enchanted Rock is absolutely beautiful. I'd recommend bringing a hydration pack as its a pretty steep hike. Awesome view at the top though!

I lived in Dallas for about a year and loved going to Klyde Warren Park. It has a great environment, good food, and nice restrooms. It's also really close to great coffeeshops like Oak Lawn Coffee, Method, and Houndstooth.

Definitely worth the hike. I highly recommend bringing trekking poles as the hike back becomes really steep at certain points. Bring good hiking shoes that have a rubber toe as the trail is mostly rocks and you can easily hurt your toe. Overall, definitely worth seeing!
