Big Butt Wildflower Walk

1 mile; 303 ft. total elevation gain; Pensacola Township, NC This was a Wildflower Foray sponsored by the Asheville Mushroom Club (I know, right?), so as such, it took us over 3 hours to walk 1 mile along this trail. And the road TO the trailhead was a serious adventure, too, in that it was […]

Appalachian Trail: Lovers' Leap Loop

1.81 miles; 367 ft. total elevation gain; Hot Springs, NC I did start out with the best of intentions on this hike, I really did. I meant to do a longer route called the Pump Gap Loop which includes a bigger section of the Appalachian Trail but, well, it was HARD, as in steep and […]

Wales Coast Path, New Quay

| September 23, 2019

1 mile; New Quay, Wales, UK We had a lot of trouble even finding the Coast Path here, and gave up and just did a short stroll around town. Lots of lovely front doors in this town! There were still a lot of boats out on the beach? strand? Whatever you call it. The British […]
