    VIDEO: Two Hikes in Linville Gorge

    Here is a video of Two Hikes in Linville Gorge last week.



    The first hike was an overnighter from Pine Gap to Spence. The second was a tour of the Chimneys and NC Wall, guided by Ken, Hawkeye and MtnCmpr. We didn't get a shot of it, but the highlight was a Peregrine Falcon sighting, as it made a high speed run far below us.

    There are several still shots below, including a bear we saw. On the way home, Thing1 and I explored the roads between exits 94 & 96, looking for shots of the Gorge. We found some!

    Thank you, Hawk-eye!

    Very, very nice MacEntyre!! Thank you for putting that together. I wasn't aware that Thing1 also went out on that overhang. She's a brave young lady!
    Not so sure whether Acer is brave, or something beyond that! Heard Karl in the background making a comment regarding that. He sure earned his new trail name.

    Thanks again, and I enjoyed the time with all you folks.
