Hike Directions: You’re going to have to hike the Upper Whitewater River upstream from NC281. It’s part trail, part riverwalk, part bushwhack and other stuff as well. I was short on time and afraid I was going to have to spend the night in the woods so there wasnt a lot of time to set up and shoot. As it turned out, we walked out of the woods half an hour before dark, dirty, exhausted, scraped, bruised and relieved after a daylong adventure in the wilds of the Upper Whitewater Gorge. For someone used to setting up a tripod and getting the light just right, these two came out pretty good for point and click! The sunlight in the second pic is very cool!
