I'm Bill Fuller... many hikers call me by my trail name,
"Possum", which was given to me by my children.
I'm a native of Lebanon, Virginia, but now reside just
outside of Johnson City, Tennessee. I'm a graduate
of Virginia Tech where I majored in Agronomy, with a
concentration in Turfgrass Management. I've been
employed with the City of Johnson City as the Golf
Maintenance Manager for Buffalo Valley & Pine Oaks
Golf Courses for the past 15 years
my hobby is the outdoors, in particular hiking and
backpacking, while photographing the places I visit.
I've had a great admiration for mountains for about as
long as I can remember.
overall interests include completing trail systems such as
the Appalachian Trail, along with "peak-bagging"
(reaching certain prominent summits), and simply exploring
and photographing places that few people ever see in
goal of this site is to share my photography and trail
information with people who have the same interests so
they can use my treks as a resource for their own outings.
also have many other projects: I'm a
semi-professional photographer, and I enjoy website
design. I recently redesigned the Tennessee
Eastman Hiking Club's website. I'm also
interested in trail maintenance in order to do my part
with keeping the Appalachian Trail in Tennessee in good
condition. Shannon and I have adopted a section of
the A.T. from the Hampton
Blue-blaze trailhead, across Pond Mountain, back to Highway
321 at Watauga Lake.
all older photography on this site was taken by a Canon
A60 Powershot. Some of the newer ones taken on
longer excursions and backpacking trips were done with a
very lightweight Fuji. On shorter hikes where
carrying weight is not an issue, I'm able to bring my
Nikon D80 to get some of the better images that you see on

questions, suggestions, or just to say "Hi".
