OK, not much of a trip report here...a long weekend in our favorite rental cabin enjoying the great view off the back deck, taking a break from a hectic summer of field work, and spending time with the family before our boys fly the coop for school. This sums up the weekend pretty well...


Day hikes at Grayson Highlands (yes I know that's in VA and doesn't fit the title, but we are in a cabin in NC so work with me) and a trip down to Linville Gorge encompass all our hiking. We did Table Rock the hard way from Spence Ridge Trail and had a quiet hike and lunch just short of the real Table Rock to avoid the crowds. We call the spot Coffee Table Rock...a fine and relaxing weekend, but a boring trip report.


Got a couple of good ones planned for August and September along with some new gear to test. Until then, hope your trails are crooked and lead to the most amazing paraphrase Ed Abbey.
