Day 4 - Graveyard Fields91 viewsIt was a very rainy and foggy day. The visibility on the Blue Ridge Parkway was close to zero in spots. We made our way down to Graveyard Fields in the Pisgah National Forest. We hiked down to a valley where there was a trout creek that had two decent sized waterfalls. Due to the inclement weather, however, we never got to see much of the upper falls. RD and Cosmo saw more than I did, but I was soaking wet, had sore thighs, and was pissed off, so I left early.

Triumphal Pose453 viewsI got there, and my feet were inundated. It was worth it to be immortalized standing next to "my" cool tree, a la Chief Osceola standing next to the sabal palm on the Florida state seal.
