Bonjour! All the snow's gone! You have to look around for small patches of it now. Time off was very good, Got to see some good live music, Taste new beers, Eat ethnic foods, Backpack, go on some long runs, and watch a thunderstorm. I had a nice time in the Pisgah with great weather, We were near the Shining Rock Area. A few of these pictures are from there, Can you tell which ones?
I hiked up Trillium from the Rainbow Falls parking lot yesterday. The first time i've hiked in shorts and was able to take a nap on trail in the sun in quiet some time, even got a little burnt :). I'll save pictures from trillium for tomorrow.
I've got only 7 more nights up here, it's gone by very quickly.
I believe y'all have kept the blog going with advice while I was gone haha, 50 comments! This week I'll be cleaning up my space, packing up, and trying not to make too big of a mess for the crew to clean up when I take off.
The trails seem pretty much back to normal, except that there are still plenty of trees fallen on trails, and some icy spots in the shade. I counted 10 downed trees and 2 rocks slides on Trillium.
There is rain in the forecast all this upcoming weekend.
I'll be figuring out this week how I will be updating you all about my trip starting in a few weeks, any suggestions?
