Our trip takes us to North Carolina this time, where we experience the great Smokie Mountains and many beautiful sights along the way. The Blue Ridge Parkway is home to and array of trails, mountain views and lucious green scenery. The first day of our trip took us to Chimney Rock and the Lake Lure area for some high mountain views up on top. This sight is one of a kind and allows you to see for miles! The second day took us to Linville, NC where we experienced a hike up and down the side of a mountain overlooking the one-of-a-kind Linville Falls! This waterfall appears to go into the side of a mountain ridge and explodes into a pool of beautiful water landscapes. A creek follows. The third day took us to the Road to Nowhere, an eerie road that was built only 6 miles before workers were told to stop. There are many stories about the road, but the history of it is very difficult to obtain. A spooky tunnel to the end of the road shows just how creepy this area actually is. Later in the day, our travels took us back to a place we visited last year, Cherokee, NC. In Cherokee, we wrote our initials in a bamboo forest in a local park. We went back to locate our original location and we found it! Memories were recalled, and we continued on. While driving in the direction of "home", we found a small sign that says "Soco Falls". If you blink, you'd miss it! But we are very happy to say that we did NOT miss it, and we were rewarded with one of the most amazingly beautiful sights of the entire trip! The air was in the 60's and the water was cold and clear. A huge waterfall that was worth the entire trip! Thank you for watching and we hope you enjoyed the video as much as we enjoyed filming it!

Pilot Rock, Pisgah National Forest, NC
 
23:23
My peakbagging hike on July 28 to finish all of the remaining 5K peaks in the Mount Pisgah vicinity. There are six significant 5K mountains that are hikeable in one day. Since I had already hiked Fryingpan Mountain and Mount Pisgah, I skipped those and decided to add a difficult loop courtesy of Jeff Clark at Meanderthals (check link below). First I drove past the Mount Pisgah Recreation Area to Pigeon Gap on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and followed the Mountains-to-Sea Trail south to summit Green Knob (5,056 ft). This short but moderately steep climb was a good warmup. I drove back to Buck Spring Gap Overlook and followed the MST north past the Mount Pisgah Trailhead and climbed up to Little Pisgah Mountain. This was a short, easy bushwhack from the trail to the county high point. Back at the car I finally grabbed my pack and headed south on the MST past the Buck Spring Lodge site then followed the Laurel Mountain Trail and Laurel Mountain Connector Trail around Little Bald Mountain. Then I began the Pilot Rock Trail, which had some great shrub tunnels. The highlight of the trail is Pilot Rock, one of the lesser known plutons in the region. The rock is steep and hazardous. If it is wet, forget about scrambling down to get a better view since you'll probably die. I carefully switchbacked my way down the rocks and took a seat admiring the Cradle of Forestry National Historic Site which encompasses Pink Beds and the South Fork Mills River watershed. Next the trail passes through a boulder field and then I took the Pilot Rock Extension Trail to the Pilot Rock cliff base. Although not as large as other plutons, Pilot Rock cliffs are still impressive. Following Yellow Gap Rd I began the Thompson Creek Trail, which is known to be steep. It definitely lived up to its billing. At the beginning it is almost flat, and you know eventually you will have to climb 1,800 feet in less than 2 miles. When it starts climbing it really gets steep, especially after the upper creek crossing. Resuming the Pilot Rock Trail, there is still a 400-foot climb to the top of Little Bald Mountain. On the way I passed by a dead mole near the summit, which was an odd sight. I've never seen a mole in the mountains much less one lying dead out in the open. I continued on the MST south passing through Pisgah Inn. There are great views east of the area I had just hiked, and a folk concert was ongoing with many patrons drinking beer in rocking chairs. It looked like a great way to spend the evening. Unfortunately I still had to climb up Big Bald using the Frying Pan Trail, my last summit of the day. Overall the hike was tougher than expected because I included the big loop, but a good day to bag four more 5K peaks in North Carolina. Hike #1 -- 1.9 miles with 609 feet elevation gain in 39 minutes. Hike #2 -- 14.0 miles with 3,601 feet elevation gain in 7 hours and 20 minutes.

Bridal Veil Falls is one of the most unusual and most popular falls in the South by virtue of its location along scenic mountain highway US 64. The old road, in fact, passes underneath the 60-foot high falls. During cold spells, the falls create a large mound of ice at its base. If it stays cold long enough, the falls will form one giant column of ice.
