Ask the dog if she wants to go for a ride/walk and this is the face you get!
Kodak seems nervous about this stream crossing?
After a slow morning, doing camp chores and cleaning up from last night’s 1am hike off Max Patch. Today was all about running Hurricane Creek.
Our two Tacomas. I don’t have a picture or dash cam video, but James said he thought I might flip my Taco today… there was a ledge that was off camber and as I started my second attempt up, my back right wheel fell into a hole, causing my drivers front to lift way up…. I knew enough as I felt it to stay on the gas, and the truck came back down fairly hard… James said he and Elizabeth just looked at each other in their truck and said “wow” – I then spotted James through with a better line, but he still lifted a driver’s front tire a couple of feet!
An early morning bike ride, a new route to stretch the distance.
But still across the Linn Cove Viaduct and it’s freshly paved surface.
Then time to hike…. my original planned trail is closed, so we started up Rough Ridge Trail
it’s very rocky….
then over the top to the Wilson Creek Trail to make a loop.
A great day along the Blue Ridge Parkway!
Kodak along the Deep River Nature Trail in Randleman. I am really thinking of starting the 52 Hike Challenge again….
The dog REALLY wants to catch the mole living in my yard…. and so do I.
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.

Cave opening, it is less than a 1/4 from parking lot down stairs, but we walked the long way over Boone Peak trail and Cottonwood trail
