--Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) Scottish author
You may have noticed that the posts on Appy Treks have been a little less frequent lately. Thought I'd catch you up on what's been going on in my life... Well, for the last month or so I've been going through some major home remodeling as my kitchen and laundry room were completely gutted, a wall removed, and then everything put back together removing any and all references to the 1980s. (I'll post photos eventually). This, on top of new classes I'm teaching and an energetic new puppy. So things have been pretty hectic (exhausting?) around here. And just as the remodeling project was getting completed, I've come down with the cold/flu bug that's been going around. So needless to say, I haven't been out and about much recently. Hopefully this just means that everything in my life will fall into place perfectly for spring!
Here's a photo of the spectacular Linville Falls taken a couple years ago from the Plunge Basin Overlook. Located off of the Blue Ridge Parkway (Mile #316.5), this 45' waterfall is a popular destination and with it's many trails and overlooks, a very fun place to explore.
