A day in the Linville Gorge Wilderness on May 15, 2016 netted a very positive day. Hard work, but a great time.
Every time I set foot into the Linville Gorge Wilderness I feel like I am in a candy store. Wild trails, wildflowers, wildlife and wild times. Who could ask for more if you love the outdoors. Now, I am
not talking about just going to Wiseman’s View and looking out over the Gorge, I am talking about taking the drop down one of the many trails that lead to the bottom and the Linville River – that is what I mean about wild.
This day had me finally doing something I had been needing to do for some time, for personal gain, by helping with some trail maintenance. Everyone wants to take the trail but they do not want to maintain it. I felt it was my time to give back to the trails I travel so I hooked up with Kevin Massey. Had been a member of the Linville Gorge Facebook group and passed up other times to help on the trail for job related issues, but this time I had time. Babel, here I come.
