this afternoon to hear the redtail hawk
scream, and catch her swooping
over the blue ridge

like I did yesterday. 39 more words

WNC Hikes: Cat Gap Loop Trail

Dearest Mickey,

Cat Gap Loop Trail is right off the parking lot of the Pisgah National Forest Fish Hatchery, so it’s super accessible. It’s about 4.5 miles, starting and ending at opposite ends of the parking lot, but there is a bypass trail that takes off about .3 miles and foregoes the hardest part of the trail. 58 more words
