Bays Mountain Park

Saturday, April 21st

We had a great hiking/camping trip at Bays Mountain!
 
Thankfully the weather turned out very nice.  The rain held off and we all stayed dry (well except for the creek).

This was a fun filled weekend that included many activities such as:
the planetarium show, hiking around the lake, camping at a primitive log cabin, geocaching, hiking to the fire tower, participating in a team building low-ropes course, and much more!

Backpacking Trip

Saturday & Sunday (March 31 & April 1st)

We hiked a total of 13 miles from US 421 to Backbone Rock.

We had a great hike through the fog on Saturday to Abingdon Gap shelter where we camped with a couple of thru hikers on their 2,184 mile journey from Georgia to Maine.  The weather was great on Sunday morning for our descent to Backbone Rock where pizza and cold drinks were waiting.
