Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Creek Wilderness
Friday, November 25, 2011

I was sorting through some trip photos from last year and came across these from a trip I made into the Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wildernes last October. There’s some pretty good pics from that trip so I thought I’d share them.

Started the first day along the Slickrock creek trail. The first two pictures are of Lake Cheoah.
