    Cool WOOHOO 1st Trip to Linville Gorge Hawksbill

    Woo man am I stoked about next weeks hang in the Gorge. This was my first time ever in the Gorge and my wifes second trip ever on a hike. She did a great job and I was very proud of her. We had a great afternoon on HawksBill with The Breeze and his wife and I thought I would share some pics and my first video snipit with my new Canon Pwr Shot D10. I am still learning how to operate it but it is great fun. When you step out onto those rocks after the climb up the trail...it all comes flooding in...I am seeing with my own eyes what most people will only see in pictures. AMAZING utterly and astoundingly AMAZING.

    Yep, looked a little hazy in the videos, but not to bad.
    Great views up on Hawks Bill & some of the other high places there!

    Very nice! For your first time in the Gorge you timed it just right with the leaves in full color.

    I am looking forward to it myself...I actually think the colors will be in full rock and roll mode then. The pics were great but the little haze that rolled in made them nowhere as vivid as they were. I gotta get busy on a big ol muskydin pie to bring with me!
