    Either way, it was a good time watching them.


    And, thanks for the nice comments, gang!
    Great pics.

    The Peregrines nest over on Looking Glass. Most of the birds around John Rock are Turkey Vultures.

    Thanks for sharing. That looked like a nice, relatively easy getaway for a night. I like those from time to time.

    Great photos. I can't wait till I have the opportunity to make it out that way myself. Maybe next group hang out that way.

    I've been lovin' Pisgah for years brother, Some of the most beautiful country on the planet in my opinion. The family hits the BRP at least once a year and catch some biorythm reset from the road. That panaram function is awsome! Those would make some killer web page banners.

    Looks like you can find river access along the first section of either side of the trail. Would you recomend hiking up clockwise or counter-clockwise? I'm assuming that John Rock is about 12 o'clock and the parking lot is roughly 6 (not technically right, I know).
