Shug WOW (witty of the woods) HA!
Seriously thanks for the recollect to the water tree. One one hike Mac told us where it was, on another hike MillerGear and I found it. NICE memories.
The Linville Gorge area, alas taken for granted since it's so close to home--but for those targeting areas because they are simply stupendous then the Gorge is a must.
Cool shots of the black shug snake weaving through the piney wood...are they poisonous?
