I love hiking my home here in the Hickory Nut Gorge area of Western North Carolina!
As so beautifully stated:
“THERE ARE PLACES ON THIS EARTH that touch the soul with the sheer power of their magnitude. The Hickory Nut Gorge in Western North Carolina is such a place. Evident in its people is a distinctive characteristic that has resurfaced over and over throughout generations and echoes within the whole community, for it is the very thing that brought them together in the first place. And even now, this monolithic gorge still has the power to siphon out, from the thousands of people who come each year; those with certain cast of mind, and draw them close to its bosom.” In the Shadows of Chimney Rock by Rose Senehi
This well preserved area has touched this individuals’ soul not only for the sheer beauty but more so by the dear friends who hike these mountains with me and my wife Joan.
So to all the truly beautiful people who share my life’s journey, here’s to you!
Thank you for being in my life!
It is such a blessing to hike these trails and life with you!

“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived. “Henry David Thoreau
