 Linville Gorge Panorama from Sunshine Point

Matt, Kitty, and I got together for a hike along the Rock Jock Trail in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area of North Carolina.

The Linville Gorge is one of the most rugged hiking destinations in the Carolinas!  We were at it for over 7 hours and only hiked about 5 miles!  Of course we did spend a lot of time photographing and soaking up the amazing views!
