Make an Heritage Trail

A today at Jones Gap State Park in South Carolina. They don't open until 9AM, which started us hours after usual, lots more people and much warmer. Pretty place, managed to crack my knee on a tree, so not the best outing.

But caught this short video of rapids for anyone needing a bit of burbling brook. This was the Middle Saluda, I believe. Most of the 2 we hiked ran along this. Two , too. Only one knee.

Had a fantastic walk near Dunblane today. The forecast predicted some showers but we got lucky!

I live for country walks like this

Rode over to check on the progress of this. It's moving along, with something like 30 yards of trail complete and open for some reason. Looks like the whole piece should be open by the fall though!

This foot bridge is the "gateway" to a major wilderness-- the Pemigewasset Wilderness of the White , . It has been the starting point for me for many wonderful adventures including my trip last month. It first takes you over the picturesque East Branch Pemigewasset River which the trail then follows at first.

Yesterday's adventure was to see if the I last rode on my were rideable on the , as I recalled they were not too technical. Well it might be doable but I decided they were a bit too dense for the ebike and my even acted up and it took me awhile to find my way out of all the interlocking trails. So not recommended.

This is from the last section of leading to the mountain summit I hiked to earlier this month. It is a very pleasant gradual climb, traversing across a steep section of the mountain.
