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.
Looking forward to the weekend.
No tennis tonight, so the dog and I walked downtown in the dark.
