Regretfully, I had to bow out of _Tinker_'s Gorge trip. I was so looking forward to that trip, with good friends that I've made over the past year and a half! Anyway, Ken reminded me that the Gorge is always open... so I thought I would go ahead and schedule another hike!
I have always wanted to see what I call the the jigsaw puzzle, where the Linville River winds by the end of Brushy Ridge. I'm hoping that Ken and Hawk-eye are available, and can suggest the best route. Perhaps Pine Gap Trail down and out via Conley Cove? If that's too ambitious, we could exit at Wisemans.
This will be a single night out, with an early Saturday morning departure.
