Month: April 2017

April 9, 2017


Today was another day in the woods. We started on a section of the Uwharrie River I have wanted to paddle for a while. It needs spring rains to be deep enough to paddle.


After the thunderstorms in the middle of the week, it looked promising, featuring over 12 class I rapids (easiest) and good flow. I don’t have pictures, but we started almost immediately when Sam flipped her boat when she hit a strainer (tree)


A great couple of hours on the water!


Then hike #15 of #52hikechallenge – Birkhead Tract of the Uwharrie Game Land.

What is Clay photographing this week?


An Eastern Fence Lizard.

A good day: Got my VPN to play nice and watched the Tour of Flanders, always love to see a long solo break away win! Then a bike ride, my first 50 miler of the year (I had not planned it, so I ran out of water and the last 10 miles were tough.


Then Sam and I did an evening hike on Middle Mountain Trail at the zoo. #14 of #52weekchallenge

A day in Uwharrie Forest, starting at the Uwharrie Jamboree celebrating the opening of the OHV trails for the season. Then Clay and I drove around some of the back roads.


Remember my series of Clay bending over playing photographer?


This week it was a snake. Nerodia
