Panthertown

Looking for places to train in the Southeast, I received a really good suggestion to check out Panthertown in southern North Carolina.  John joined me for several hours of fun - here he is checking out the map before getting going:


Hmm, a powerline cut, maybe I should train a little on that...


Looking for a "way through" the thorny plants:


Not so certain how useful this is, but it was a good reminder of some of the less-nice places we have gone orienteering:


The woods had low thorny vegetation, but it was easier than the powerline (especially with orienteering gaiters - or jeans).


Lower down near the creek we found a jungle of rhododendron and some really neat trails through it:


Reminded us of hiking in Hawaii!


The waterfalls were pretty:


John heading over for a better look:


Or maybe some sunshine:



Excellent!


Another good day in the woods.
