Lunch @ Bearpen Gap, Craggy Gardens,
uh-oh Yogi the Rangers not gonna like this

There is a turn off for Stony Fork on the drive up to the picnic area nice gravel road and it beats hanging with the Sarurday afternoon crowd on the BRP. This little private owned mill is near the bottom outside of Dillingham,NC.

I found Forest Road 74 that heads up Walker Mountain and deadends at the trail to the waterfalls. Several nice waterfalls on the switchbacks on the way up.

Huge butterflies

The hike to the falls is 20-30 minutes, moderately strenuous and it had just rained so it was slick in spots.
I guess the falls to be around 90 foot or so.


Came back down the mountain headed N on Dillingfham Rd back across 197 and the skies were again threatening.

Hung out at the Burnsville library and downloaded some FB. Neat little square where the library sits with a playhouse and the Yancy County Music Museum. Shoulda taken some pics. The Lovely Rea and I will check it out next time we go down. My solo trips are justified as scouting trips for things we like to do together.
