Linville Falls 2011...NC

If you find yourself on The Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock NC and you feel the urge to stop for a while to hike and enjoy the sites I suggest you check out Linville Falls.  We have been there several times and we were in the area so we decided to return.
Made a stop at Thunder Hill Overlook on the way up.....
...(we stop at almost every overlook we come to:-)

Linville Falls Trail System
If you head up the trail to the right of the welcome center it is all uphill but an easy open trail.
That is what we decided to do on this trip. The lower trail, as we have learned, from past experience,  is more difficult and  can be muddy after a rain and it had just rained a couple of days before.
We headed up the trail... 






We did take the more difficult lower trail last year with Erica.
Here are a few memory shots.....





I love the mountains and can't wait to go back.
Get out and go hiking....
Enjoy Your World:-)

  1. Kathiey, I don't think anyone loves the mountains any more than Linda & I do and your pictures were absolutely awesome. We were actually going to vacation in Linville this year but Linda's knee operation postponed that. We still plan to get there. For now, thank you so much for being able to see it from your perspective. Have a wonderful weekend.
