My beautiful daughter asked me to take a picture of her new mustard sweather so she could post on Instagram….

Since Deb and Sam weren’t with me last weekend, I wanted to share Valle Crucis and the original Mast General Store.

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!

Then off to find a waterfall I looked for before, but didn’t get to.

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.
