VivaLaVida in the Big South Fork

hey everybody,

Since Eric (86Scotty) told me about Big South Fork, North of Tennesse, and I still had to wait on some administrative paperworks, I'm just coming back from a one week trip in that area. Thanks for the advice Eric, it's definitely a great place to visit.

I had some quite cold days with a 7° morning but VivaLaVida's insulation and heater work great. I also had some snow but nothing scary for a Swiss guy!

Here are some pictures of the trip.


1. South Arch from Twin Arches

Re: VivaLaVida in the Big South Fork

Awesome Claude! I'm really glad you went up there and found all of 'the spots'! I was thinking you would love it from a photographers standpoint. I need to get up there again soon too.

Thanks also for posting the great pics. You are a great photographer. I can't wait to show my lady.

Great photos, by the way.

Cheers,
