Snow day at the cabin.
The dog loved it!
Moe the cat, not-so-much
time to play
the float tubes worked well when the dog didn’t bite a hole in it…. ps one tube down!
for the first time in year I got to XC ski, the snow/ski combo didn’t work well, after I got my track, I wasn’t get as much glide as I wanted, so I gave up and mountain biked a while.
I was getting cabin fever and needed to get out the house, so teh dog and I hiked teh trails at the NC Zoo.
I really wish Asheboro/Randolph County would build mountain bike trails, it is tough to drive 40 mins or more in 15 degrees to ride…. I would be riding this week, if I could do it locally!
The dog and I play in the yard.
Hike #51 #52hikechallenge Boone’s Cave Park in Lexington. Kodak remembered the last time I took her to a cave, she had to swim out, so she waited at the opening as I explored a bit.
This is a pretty little park and the caves are what most people come for. The caves are more hole in wall type, but cool. There is no proof that Daniel Boone really lived in the caves as his family built a home as legend has it, but he and other family did live in the area, so maybe….
As I said, it is a small park. I hiked all the trails, (except the Back Country Trail, it is closed) and double hike a couple in 2 hours or so.

Hike #49 #52hikechallenge – 2 dogs made it more of a pull…. Goddard Park Avondale, PA
If you have an errand to run, you better bring the dog!
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.
