Aug 21, 2017 - Solar Eclipse Day!

Monday came early at Logan Creek Lodge. Some of the Hogs whipped up a great breakfast of sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy and fruit - it was yummy! Our spot in Sapphire Valley was in the Path of Totality for the Solar Eclipse, so we decided to hang out at the lodge rather than being out on the roads on the motorcycles. A craft show was setup in a large field behind the lodge. We all walked down and checked it out after breakfast. Lots of cool things - Steve and I placed an order for a custom wood sign for our RV.

Last weekend, Sandy and I headed to the mountains to visit the amazing Upper Whitewater Slot Canyon. Sandy had to work Friday evening, so we left very early Saturday morning and drove out to the Ingles in Cashiers. After meeting up with the group, we drove south on NC-107 to Heady Mountain Road and followed this to the end at the bridge over Whitewater River. We got our stuff together and began our hike into the forest. Shortly, we came to a dilapidated old house near the river. Just past here, we got off the trail and started creek walking...
