    Man! I pictured mud, rain, mud, squito's. However, to see the elk may have been worth it, truly. Where's the pics??

    Great hike, not one drop of rain while we were hiking. Got along fine with everyone except Tim, you all know how difficult he is to get along with (only kidding.)

    My husband and I live in Asheville, can we meet you at Cataloochee? Would we need to get on the wait list if we are meeting you there?

    I have an animal emergency. Hopefully someone from the wait list can go in my place.

    Am new to your group. Would enjoy the outing if it would work out to have the space for me.
