_anatic screwed with this post: so he can find the dang maps without fumblin' all over the internets.


Went campin' last week in the Pisgah National Forest. Left Wed. about noon an rode south over Crabtree Mountain, through Canton, NC to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

From there I headed down to Cove Creek (off FS475) an unloaded. Stopped at the trail head to the base of Looking Glass Rock on the way into town for supplies.

Finally back an with everything set up it was time to go play.

On Cuttle's Secret Road (FS229).

Stopped at a parking area an hiked in to where Farlow Gap Trail crossed. Yes I could get in there, NO I would not recommend it!

The wild Azaleas were still blooming up there.

Then rode to Cathey's Creek Falls.

I SOOO wanted to meet up with y'all Sun., but I was beat! Took till 1:30 to get packed. I wasn't really alert enough to be riding so I took it real easy through town an out to the house. I was back in Cove Creek with a bunch of non-ridin' friends or I would have at least :waveed as y'all went by.

He showed me all around his back yard, but the only place we stopped was at Horseshoe Rock.

Fri. I took it easy, then road to Paradise Fall an spent the afternoon swimming an laying around in the sun.

Sat. morning we walked up to the falls on Cove Creek.

Then later went to Courthouse Falls.

Spent the rest of the afternoon laying around on the rocks at Cove Creek then stayed up 1/2 the night keeping the fire company. Sun. dawned an I realized I was in NO shape to try an keep up with the FF on the group ride out of Mills River. So I pulled every thing out into the sun to dry, got packed an took an easy ride back home. It was a great time, but is there really a bad time to be in the woods?

_anatic 08-09-2011 07:59 PM

Went out again today. I met Aarrff, Luke15 an ktmMike in Fines Creek. We took off for the "Tabernacle of the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration".

In The Gulf.

Stopped to eat in Hartford, I always forget to take pics of the food. The place was over run with rafters, one guy asked me if our bikes were rentals.:bert Should of told him no, we're UT fans. (Hey, can we get that smile with orange koolaid?)

Headed home on Round Mountain Rd.

that's the common problem when riding with Mike, you always have a great time, but in the end you have no idea where you were :lol3

_anatic 08-09-2011 09:10 PM

Glad I'm not the only one!:rofl

Left early yesterday to ride the MC tourist trap part of WNC,ETn. We were suppose to lead a bunch from the flatlands, but they all bailed. So we went anyway, it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Made a nice run on the Cherohala, here discussing who's turn it is to lead.
http://anatic.smugmug.com/Other/9-3-...IMG4798-X2.jpg

Ran into Klaviator in Tellico :wave.
http://anatic.smugmug.com/Other/9-3-...IMG4799-X2.jpg

Came back through Deals Gap. Had a pretty good run there too. Very low expectations so I was pleasantly surprised. On NC28.

http://anatic.smugmug.com/Other/9-3-...IMG4802-X2.jpg

Came back on the Parkway, not to much traffic there either, stopped at Waterrock Knob.
