    What? I can't hear you over the music in my head! Oh, sorry.... you were talking...

    I got caught up in the family Halloween plans. I would have only been able to stay around for a few hours even if I had come by. Looks like a good time was had by all in beautiful surroundings.

    Mighty fine music though...

    Totally understand ... my kids were little once too! From all the feedback I think it went well and everyone had a good time. I enjoyed watching everyone on the NC Wall hike ... every 100 feet a new view to be amazed by!

    Thanks for the series. I have not hiked in the east at all. This looks like a great place to visit.

    As Hawk-eye said, close to the cars that night. I just picked up a Hickery chair so I don't have to sit on the ground anymore!
