    But at the same time, if you've not been there, I hope you'll understand that parts of the gorge have been swept by wild fires in recent years, leaving an "up close" picture that is not as appealing as the untouched or recovered parts. I think of this as I look at the very beautiful, close up scenes in the Sippsey Wilderness pictures.
    ... and even though ... it's amazing to view those fire scarred areas ... to see what takes advantage of the opportunity to grow and thrive. The good Lord laid out quite a program when he designed this ball of dust we live on. Within months of the fire the ground rebounds with life.

    The Big Ditch ... is truly a magical place and this one week we're going to be there ... is just a small taste of what's there to see. Guess that's why I keep going back again and again.

    Kinda funny ... just yesterday someone asked me why I'm not going to another place to hike these days ... as strange as my focus on Linville Gorge was to them ... the question of going elsewhere when there are places in the gorge that I NEED to see is just as strange to me.

    It's not legal to remove anything from the gorge ... but I've "heard tell" of a Gorge Rat that when he went off to NCSU kept a container with a growth of Rattlesnake Plaintain in his apartment for several years before returning it to the gorge.

    Did I mention "I ain't quite right"?

    mtncmpr and jgregory124 will be there on Monday. Just not sure exactly when. To much still up in the air.

    I think CapitalBill said (a couple pages back) that he wouldn't be able to make it until Tuesday.

    Mentally-YES, Gear-NOT YET. Just found out our (mine and jgregory124) SuperShelters will not arrive this week as expected. Ordered last Friday along with 3 day delivery. Just found out today HH was out of them. I'm certainly diappointed, but hopefully they will arrive next week in time for the hang. I was told they expect to have some in by the end of this week.

    HH has apologized for the non-communication on this, and refunded my fee for 3 day shipping, but that won't keep me warm.
