High Country Visions

The Many Adventures of Joe the Hiker

Joe the Hiker is my trail companion. Sort of like a good luck talisman that hangs from my pack on every hike that I do. I have had him from the time Sandy, my cohort at work, gave him to me as a gift. He hangs on my Gregory pack and helps guide me through some tough situations. He even has a gallery. Please visit his gallery to see where he has been.

Hawk Watch

I love my hawks in Watauga County, and elsewhere, and record them when the opportunity presents itself. I currently have two that I have locked on to that have stayed in the area. One is in Boone around the Bojangles on 421 named Bo, and the other is my federally banded Red-tailed hawk I named Howard up Howards Creek Rd . I have a gallery of my hawks and are proud to show them off.
