Autumnal Views

On Sunday I finished a geocaching adventure that I started way back in July at Rocky Face Mountain Recreational Area (covered here).

I have been jonesing lately to get some hiking in.  I haven't been on a proper hike since my bike accident in early October.  Since I had been to this park before and knew what I was getting into, and I had 8 geocaches left to find (3 I missed last time, and 5  placed since then), it seemed like the perfect way to kill a lazy Sunday afternoon.

As it turns out I had no problems hiking the 5.5 miles of trails, and I managed to find all 8 caches.  On the way home I grabbed 3 more, for a total of 11 for the day.

I brought my camera along and I got some shots of the autumn foliage.  I'll leave you with some shots of the North Carolina fall colours.  November sure is a fantastic time to go hiking in the mountains of North Carolina.

With a view like this --^ you just wanna stop and take it all in...

... yeah, this is the life for me.
