But since I took this photo a long time ago, I won't count it as a grab and someone else can go get it.

That's it!

MUCH Better pic Hojo! That's it for sure. I'd accept that, but I guess the forum rules prohibit archive photos. But that's for everyone to decide together. I guess maybe let it stand another week or so and maybe give it to you? Any thoughts?

Loren...I did see that joint up the road. I was surprised around there just how out in the boonies it was, yet how many nice houses were out there. Must be something to do with the lake!

I'm like Loren...I don't really care where it is, I just like having a goal to ride towards. Gives the joy of the getting there even more purpose!

I did see that Western NC TOR and have been paying close attention to it too. Not been quite close enough for the time I've had recently.

Thanks ADV friends. Been fun. Looking forward to more! Now I just gotta find someone to teach me to ride this beast in the dirt!

FWIW When I was kid I barely remember mom and dad taking me to the "Wing & Fin" lodge that was on that lake. The lodge burnt down I think in the early 60's. Dad told me there was a sign over the "light house" on the little island. We used to go duck hunting there when I was a teen and I remember an old rusty metal water wheel laying out in the woods near where the lake starts from the creek. I have since looked for the water wheel to no avail. Several years ago there was a rumor that some big resort conglomerate had bought the property around the lake and was to build something like the "Cliffs" there. Must have fell thru during the great rescission.
Cheers
Steve

Steve W: Thanks for the history lesson. So I'm assuming the 'light house' was for with lodge as an 'attraction'. Sure wish I could see an old photo from back then.

Yeah Augie, I was planning to put the WNC tag up at 'Flasher's Falls,' but on the way back from Elf School, I remembered the UpSt tag, and going after that put me later than I cared to be to go back up the hill. I should have done two trips, to further separate them. Then again, these are in where most of the taggers can reach them fairly easily, and most of ya'll don't have to wait to get home to post 'em up. May be some bruce coming here
