Linville Gorge — June, 2012
I’ve fallen in love with Linville Gorge, despite having to traverse it’s rocky trails, lost and confused in the pitch black of the night. Sadly, we were separated two of our fellow hikers within an hour of embarking on the trail, and my dreams of alternating between laying on a river boulder and swimming all day were crushed. But all hope is not lost. Thankfully, I still live in the most beautiful place on earth and I can try again next weekend.
p.s. I kid you not about living in the most beautiful place on earth. I looked up from shoveling a pile of dirt at a local community garden today and literally lost a few breaths when I caught a glimpse of the mountains in the distance. Will this ever get old? I think not.
