Scrambling around The Chimneys.

We took the Casita trailer in for servicing today. There's a place north of Charlotte where I take it for minor repairs and general upkeep. We're planning a trip in a few weeks to a new area that we've never visited and there are some problems with the trailer--I haven't been able to get the onboard water pump to work, which has led to trouble with the water heater. Plus some other little things had to be fixed.

And it's back to the trip Andy and I took to the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area. Here are some more photos and general thoughts.

One of the more popular areas of the wilderness area is the terrain around The Chimneys. It's popular for a number of reason, including the exposed rock and the easy access from the Table Rock Parking area.

It's easy to find subjects for photos in this part of the Gorge.

Among the most spectacular scenery in the eastern USA. No doubt about it.

The area at the foot of The Chimneys.

If you will look closely, you can see a guy's head just emerging at the edge of the rock on top of this particular summit. This is one spot that I wanted to scramble, but the climbing/scrambling areas were just way too crowded with students and instructors. Next time I go there I'll make sure to go on a weekday.
