The Linville Rages!!

I was here only 3 days ago. I normally do not go to the same place back to back. As it happens, I found myself driving through the Linville Falls on the Parkway on my way to another destination. I got a quick glance of the Linville River, and noticed it was quite high. I was thinking, wow they must of got a ton of rain last night, much more than the sprinkles we received in the triad.

I have always wanted to see Linville Falls when the water was high, so today became my day. I pulled in, took the same Plunge Basin Trail I hiked over the weekend to see just the Plunge Basin View. Wow, it was awesome……

After this, I went back to the visitor center, and hiked the west side for a few views from the Upper Falls View, Chimney View, and Erwin’s View. This river was absolutely raging today and I was in awe most of my time there. I ended up with a nice 3 mile hike and some super views!!!
