I finally had time to clean up the Taco after the last camping trip.
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.
James and Elizabeth drove down from Fredericksburgto camp, cheer (heckle) me during a cross race and hike. Due to some odd USA Cycling rule, I was not allowed to race with a one day license, so no race for me…. what to do?
Hike… #45 of #52hikechallenge – I read about English Falls, the hike directions said from a guardrail on the Blue Ridge Parkway, head east and butt slide down the cliff race… listed as a 9/10 beauty rating if it has rained. I think it was a 10/10
After lunch, we hiked the back side of Linville Falls.
No color left, but a lot of water. Hike #46
Wiseman View, 1500 feet above the Linville River and a great view of Hawksbill Mountain.
Riding along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we saw this waterfall, even backtracked to the Chestoa View Overlook, but I can not find what waterfall it is…. it is big!
Back on dirt roads and pictures of Tacos.
One more of English Falls
I arrived in the mountain in a fog, I had noticed on a stop I had no taillights? When I got to the cabin, I had to fix them.
in the pouring rain…. not a fuse or bulb, but those stupid splice things the previous owner used, I will have to undo everything and re-solder the wires!
Taco and Silvervale Falls.
Hike #41 Bass Lake

Hike #40 – #52hikechallenge – Bass Lake and Carriage Trails Blowing Rock, NC
I woke up to heavy fog, but no rain, so off to the trails.
It started raining as I headed back, so I stayed around the trail head for extra pictures.
Back to the mountain house, help my brother winterize it and then say goodbye.
Rather than head home, I spent some time exploring, revisiting past dirt roads and looking at new one.
A fun day, hiking short trails, driving down dirt roads to find gates or barns, and taking the home way home.
Heading to the mountains!
Since I was traveling solo this weekend, I stopped for dinner and waited for the sunset.
Raven Rocks overlook never disappoints.

A slightly different composition.
Up early for a mountain bike ride and dinner plans that night, so I had some time for Taco maintenance, oil change, tire rotate and brake pad replacement, I had heard the wear indicator, but had no idea I wore it completely off.
No ticket needed for this ride.
