    Storming...

    I'm sitting here watching a big lightening and thunder show coming from the direction of the Gorge. Bet they got those tarps down low, riding it out, and loving every bit of it.

    Yeah, I was just walking the dog and watching it. Come on up tomorrow. Some of us are meeting at Conley Cove about 8:30 - 9am. We'll either hike in Conley or move a car to Pinchin and hike it, then turn upriver.

    The group met at the trailhead and headed out close to the appointed time. Unfortunately, I wasn't with them. Wednesday afternoon I was down by the Linville River and slipped on a boulder, badly twisting my knee. It wasn't well enough by Friday morning to handle the trail so I had to back out.

    My account of the abbreviated trip is here.

    When the others roll in, please feel free to add your stories and photos.
