- The 72,000 acre "Wind Rock" trail complex is near the city
of Oak Ridge in East Tennessee. The photos in this collection were taken
along a boulder field that ascends steeply, cresting on the Clinch Mountain
Fault. This particular 0.4 mile trail section is called "Rattle Rock,"
and it is undeniably one of the most challenging trails in this part of
- Utah's White Rim Trail is in Canyonlands National Park, about 25 miles
from Moab. It is roughly 90 miles long and requires at least two days
to complete. Four wheel drive is obligatory, although there are no truly
difficult sections. The trail is entered at the Shafer Switchbacks. Be
prepared to feel your heart thumping in your chest as you descend into
the canyon along the thread-thin dirt road that clings to the undercut
canyon wall. The White Rim Trail offers spectacular views of the Colorado
and Green Rivers.
