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.
