THE CANYON - Whip finish - Aug 15, 2011
The tires crunched to a loud stop as I eased into one of the ever so slight pull-outs along Cabin Road overlooking the Owassee Rapids on Big Pine Creek. The road was extremely narrow allowing for barely one vehicle to slip past a car parked along the mountain side of the road. Extra care was needed in getting as much use of the available pull-out as possible since to block the road leading to the private cabins ahead would bring the wrath of the owners and a tow truck. Neither of which would be a pleasant thought this far off of the beaten path. On the other side, was a 200 foot drop to the creek below as it entered into the area known as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon.
