    VIDEO - Doughton Park, NC (dang near killed me)

    Here's the video from my trip to Doughton Park, located just west of Stone Mountain in NC.
    This was a one-nighter, with a challenging day hike up a primitive trail.
    The views at the top mostly made me forget about the pain going up.

    Looks like another place I need to add to my hanging list. Thanks for taking us along.

    Nice video of a pretty cool trip. Good to see running water, we won't see that here for the next few months!! And don't worry about the tshirt. You should see what we're wearing now.

    Nice video TallPaul!
    Adding this place to my list - anything with a restaurant in the middle of a primitive trail gets my vote

    Very nice video. I sure hate I couldn't go with you. I'm feeling much better today.

    Nice! :-) Loved your video. Very relaxing.
    Stealth camping is all fun and games until you have to take a dump.
