A little New Year's Day tradition we've been trying to do each year ... get the first four together for a little time in The Big Ditch for trail work, a hike or just good fellowship in the place we all love ... Linville Gorge Wilderness. This year we were short one Gorge Rat ... Kenneth Crump but he wasn't forgotten!
While the forecast was less than stellar we actually had a fairly dry time with only a bit of wind and misting rain during our hike down Jonas Ridge to visit Celestial Point, Rhubarb Point and the infamous Sitting Bear rock formation. It was a great way to start the New Year!
