My son and I actually drove over Sunday from Chattanooga doing some scouting / exploring...
We made it to Robbinsville at 11:00, ate lunch, drove up Little Snowbird, Snowbird to Junction and then went up Santeetlah all the way to the Skyway. Figured out I could be on the upper Santeetlah in about the same time as the upper North River on the TN side.
Long day, one big circle but with three new streams to try. I was quite excited to see this recent post... Then I noticed how many posts there were and went to the beginning - wow! Some nice trout way back when!
Now I am thinking long weekend camping this fall... Hmm.
