Hot Springs 2007

Alright today I took my annual trip up to Hot Springs.  It’s about 30 miles away and is an awesome ride for anyone with a motorcycle.  Unlike the past few times I added a casual hike into the mix.  Ok it really wasn’t casual, unless you consider hiking up a steep slope along a rock face casual.  The total hike was roughly 2-3 miles including some off trail exploring. The highlight of the trip was hiking to the tops of 3 crags that overlook each other as well as the French Broad River.  I have included some photos, enjoy.  You will have to use the angle of the picture to roughly tell how high I climbed.
