I finally made a start (and finish) in the 2019 North Carolina Cyclocross season.
After a lot of overnight rain, the course in Boone was muddy again!
I had fun, didn’t race well, fell a couple of times, but it was great to be back on the start line this weekend!
After the race, I explored for fall colors
The light wasn’t great, so I went for a hike
Goshen Creek is a pretty little waterway
not much color on the trees
but fun to rock hop
a just enjoy the silence
then I tried another HDR of the sunset

Pre-tennis match run. Trail around Latham Park were wet. My match went well, 6-0, 6-2, a good fitness night!
It was a foggy morning so I made a quick trip back to the Pisgah Covered Bridge.
I couldn’t pick….
On the way home I spotted this weird deer, being deer season, he is hiding behind a tree.

Hanging Rock State Park
Really thought the fog would burn off.

I love my driveway in Fall.
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

Looking forward to the weekend.
