I have visited these in the past, and this is more water that I have seen.

James and Elizabeth drove down from Fredericksburgto camp, cheer (heckle) me during a cross race and hike. Due to some odd USA Cycling rule, I was not allowed to race with a one day license, so no race for me…. what to do?

Hike… #45 of #52hikechallenge –  I read about English Falls, the hike directions said from a guardrail on the Blue Ridge Parkway, head east and butt slide down the cliff race… listed as a 9/10 beauty rating if it has rained. I think it was a 10/10

After lunch, we hiked the back side of Linville Falls.

Wiseman View, 1500 feet above the Linville River and a great view of Hawksbill Mountain.

Riding along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we saw this waterfall, even backtracked to the Chestoa View Overlook, but I can not find what waterfall it is…. it is big!

I arrived in the mountain in a fog, I had noticed on a stop I had no taillights? When I got to the cabin, I had to fix them.

in the pouring rain…. not a fuse or bulb, but those stupid splice things the previous owner used, I will have to undo everything and re-solder the wires!

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!
