spring is springing

i had the very special honor to welcome my dad into the narrows section of the green river gorge. the green river falls off the plateau out of the mountains of north carolina into the piedmont of south carolina. this relatively short section of river holds a very special place in my heart. to be there and introduce my dad to a place i love and have visited hundreds of times was nothing short of an honor.

dad, philly, magnolia, and myself. just above groove tube, in the sunshine:

less than two weeks later, this great river was host to another great day in honor of a late local: jerry beckwith; a bomb down the green followed immediately by a 25 mile bike ride, known as "jerry's baddle". Check out the
race results and see how well things went for the local boys and girls.

a big shout out to robin betz the lady's winner. check out her blog at the links on the right side of the page: the "expeditionettes" who've i've labeled in the link's section as "the dirt patch girls and rubes".
here's rubes out and about scouting at the garden of the gods on the west fork of the pigeon:
