Fall Flurry

Brrr! Some of the higher elevations got a dash of snow last weekend in western North Carolina. The picture at right was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway about two weeks after the one at the top of the blog, so you can see the significant changes in the fall color.

Yet, the conditions are still excellent for sticky climbing, brisk hiking and general mountain adventures. The north side of Looking Glass is crisp and quite chilly, with a narrowing window of sunshine. So, we are entering a good time of year to check out sunny NC climbing crags like the Sun Wall, Whitesides, Laurel Knob and Rumbling Bald.

Don't forget to pack fall staples for your outdoor excursions like beanies, gloves and a wicking layer such as the Montbell Combustion Fleece. All in stock at LGO!
