    That is Hawksbill Mt. There is a nice trail up that from a gravel road from the east. The summit is roughly 3,980 ft. Tablerock to the south has a 4 mile loop (3,876 ft for the summit - the closest you can get is about 100 ft from the summit on the trail). Shortoff Mt to the south has a approach from the south that is about 1.5 miles going in. It would be interesting to see what the views are from that side of the gorge.

    Got to a Renaissance Faire outside Charlotte, NC yesterday. It was a good day to experiment with new lens. The pictures are at http://public.fotki.com/bradbradstre...0071104-faire/

    The lighting (or major shade) was quite a lot of trouble in taking pictures.

    Default Nice!

    Great stuff as always, Brad! I didn't realize there was a statue of me and Emma there(#29). I'm surprised at the close resemblance to King Richard's Faire in Carver, Mass. I used to go every year. I have about a thousand pictures, someday I'll go through them and post on my website.

    Many of the folks go from Faire to Faire up the east coast. So, it may be the same folks in Mass.

    Here's to Emma.

    That looks like a lot of fun. If I had known about it we could have drove up and met you there. My kids love knights and jousting. Thanks for posting.

    Steve, it sounded like the people working this Faire started their season in the spring in Florida. I have the e-mail address of one of the vendors (mushroom lady) and she has promised to keep me informed about their 2008 schedule.
