Friday’s Hike

Finally. after several rainy Fridays in a row, we get great weather for our annual hike to Rumbling Bald tomorrow.  The northwest breeze should bring clear skies for long-range views of the North Carolina Piedmont from Eagle Rock.  We will have two meeting locations: 8:00 at BiLo Pisgah Forest;  or 8:30 Ingles US64 & I26 Hendersonville.  Please RSVP.

Lake Lure Forecast:  Friday 0% Precip. / 0 in
Mostly sunny skies. High near 60F. Winds WNW at 5 to 10 mph.


Wednesday’s Hike

More rain is forecast for tomorrow.  Of course, that forecast could change.  So for now I’ll assume we’ll be hiking.  If we do hike, we should see Matthews Creek and Ravencliff Falls at their best.  I will issue an update tomorrow morning by 7:30 if the hike is cancelled.  Cedar Mountain; 9:00.

Wednesday 100% Precip. / 0.38 in
