Wednesday when driving to Columbia, we passed this peach orchard and the gold colors were gorgeous, but I didn’t stop.

10315podCAnother weekend of racing cyclocross in NC. Saturday is on a new venue in Lenior.

10315podBThe course feature short but steep climbs, a stair run, sand, mud and some pain.

10315podMI decided to stay solo in the mountains, so after my race, and cheering some friends, I went waterfall hunting.

10315podNAnd driving dirt roads I could find.

10315podPEven some Forest Service roads.

103115podRMy second hike/water fall was cut short by too many stream crossing and only one pair of shoes.

I camped on the Blue Ridge Parkway on the last night it (campground) was open for the season, between the temps in the 40s and rain, I had the whole campground to myself, never even saw a Ranger. Peaceful night reading and listening to the rain and wind.
