Awesome write up!!! I would love to take the family camping, possibly in the spring? Maybe you and Nick can be the trail lead and tail gunner as well as CB tourguides? Sounds like you guys had a blast! Thanks again for all the great details!

Here are some pics:

Trail origin where pavement turns to dirt on old Hwy 105. This is southern end of old 105.

This is the view eastward from the southern end of the 105 after a rapid ascent up into the gorge, looking at the sheer rock faces along the eastern ridge.

Views of the Grand Canyon of North Carolina. SPECTACULAR!

FJ Kitchen. Rachel Ray has nothing on me!

Trail-end reward at viewing the always beautiful Linville Falls. Notice the patches of ice on the rocks, and yet despite the cold, there was a good crowd on hand. Pity these people rarely make it the short distance further down old 105 to see the stunning beauty of the gorge. For now it remains our little secret.

Linville Falls

The water shooting through the ancient rock grottoes

Pictures just can't capture the full effect of the roaring water and the spirit of this place.

What its all about......

Very nice. My kind of trip and definitely want to go sometime. I unfortunately am up in MD this weekend running around in DC traffic....would have much rather been running around on a dirt road in the NC mountains (but love my friends up here). Great pics too.
