I see this forum has some stuff about Citico so I figure I'll add my last trip report into various areas in the Tennessee mountains.

Citico/Slickrock/Brushy Ridge/Bald River wilderness areas.
To see all trip pics go here---
On Day 7 I finish Crowder Branch and get to Fodderstack Ridge where I turn north and hike a couple miles to this exposed ridge top I call Horn in the West. Luckily in the high wet wind I brought 14 pegs to bolt down my Hilleberg Keron tent.
My coldest night was the morning of Day 18 with 0F and -7F recorded on Mt LeConte. This pic doesn't look cold and it was taken on the first bald of Flats Mt. I leave the Flats and do a roadwalk to Long Branch.
On Day 20 I leave Bald River wilderness and luckily hitch a ride with this friendly guy down the Tellico River road to the Beach Drive-In restaurant where he drops me off for one more night in the woods.
