I walked down to Alum Cave yesterday so that I could watch some of the 'widowmakers' crash down. They are the massive ice formations that have froze overnight, warm up during the day and attempt to ruin an unaware hikers' day/life. Use caution down there! I sat there for half an hour and saw 6 that gained enough momentum that they sounded like jets.
I will be hiking long today down Bullhead, Old Sugarland and up Alum. Looking forward to introducing myself to all the folks at the NPS!
Good luck to all my friends running the Tecumseh Trail Marathon tomorrow! I am so jealous!
