Sunday we had our "Superb Owl Day Hike" to Tamassee/Lee Falls (seems really to be Tamassee Falls but some books say it's Lee). You can go to our hike link in the sidebar or just stay here and feast your eyes.
Starting off thru four meadows like this - a lot muddier than they look - you'd never know you were in for such different views and terrain a mere hour or two later.
We crossed Tamassee Creek about five times. It was slightly strategic between wiggly rocks, ice, mud, and potentially far leg reaches for us shorties.
Going up a little steeper. The last half hour or so is rock scrambling, to varying degrees. Very fun.
Really great hike and really great day. Rather a short hike for us but that gave people who were interested time to get to their Super Bowl parties, after their Superb Owl hike. (Bill named the hike but admitted later he saw the pun online somewhere. A few people didn't get it and wrote in to our group site. I of course figured it out immediately and found it pretty funny. Hint: there were not to be any owls on this hike.) It also was perfect for me since I was still getting over my cold. Perfect for a short outing - very good distance-to-fun ratio! Since we went in winter you could see the falls from farther away and all the snakes were sleeping. :)
