After our hike at Linville Gorge, we hopped back in the van and headed toward Wiseman’s View. Our directions stated that Wiseman’s View was about 4 miles down an unpaved, dirt mountain road. It was the longest 4 miles I have driven, but we did eventually find our parking lot.
This hike was completely paved and short. It promised a beautiful view and we were eager.
Of course, signs like this one always give me pause…
But off we trotted, with my constant warnings of staying back, staying close, and holding tight to my hand if needed.
Wow. Just wow.
The view was breath-taking, unable to be captured on camera, but attempted.
DO NOT SIT OR CLIMB ON THAT WALL KIDS.
We had a great view of Table Rock Mountain, which we thought would be our hike the following day.
We also had a perfect view of Hawksbill Mountain. Tricia declared, “I want to sit on the edge of that rock at the top.” No. I don’t think so girl. At least not while your still living and hiking with your Momma.
After taking in the view for quite some time, we meandered back to our car. The rest of the day was spent playing at our campsite and the surrounding campground area.
But our hikes were not over. We had one more to attempt the following day. Stay Tuned.
