2012 A.S.S.E.S. Big South Fork

This past weekend Dudeboy, Uncle Vic and I joined the rest of the A.S.S.E.S (the Arch Seekers of the SouthEastern States) for our biannual arch weekend.  This year we (with the help of the amazing Keith G.) led the group on several hikes in the BSF area.  The photos that follow are but just a few of the arches we visited.  We had perfect weather, and Keith kept us stuffed.  Above is Cat Pen Arch . . . private property, Tennessee.

I like that picture of you, me and Wayne at Triplet. Looks like a meeting of gnomes.
