If you have an errand to run, you better bring the dog!
I headed to Moore County for a road ride with friends then stopped at Bear Creek Trails in Robbins for a hike. #44 #52hikechallenge
My series, Clay taking pictures of things got an upgrade, no more cell phone as Clay upgraded to the Sony A6000
Today was supposed to be my first cross race of the year, but I am under the weather, so I stayed home and did chores. I started with a oil change on Deb’s car, as I drove it to warm it up, the brakes were squealing, so next up brakes, then I waxed half her car, mowed the grass, replaced a door handle on the Land Cruiser and worked on the bikes. It’s less work to race bikes!
My beautiful daughter asked me to take a picture of her new mustard sweather so she could post on Instagram….

It’s good to get a running start!
After tennis walk.
Since Deb and Sam weren’t with me last weekend, I wanted to share Valle Crucis and the original Mast General Store.
Hike #43 Crab Orchard Falls
The color from last week was gone. Not a great weekend for finding Fall colors, but 2 more nights sleeping in the Flippac, 3 hikes, a bike ride and time with the family and no TV, still a great weekend!
A sign along a morning bike ride on gravel and dirt roads.
Then off to find a waterfall I looked for before, but didn’t get to.
Thunderhole Falls – Hike #42
The trail to the falls is unmarked and requires a little bush whacking.
But worth the effort.
This is only the top, it has a lower fall section too.
Remember the bushwhacking part? This is the climb up, I don’t know if we could have made it without the rope!
after the hike we went driving looking for color and dirt roads. Old NC 105 follows a ridge and includes this overlook of Linville Gorge at Wiseman’s View.
Taco and Silvervale Falls.
Hike #41 Bass Lake
Sam finds her inner Ansel.
