The original plan for the day was a family trip to Asheville to check out the new Sierra Nevada brewery and do some hiking. However, Sierra woke up sick. Instead of our original plan, I built Noelle a raised-bed garden for Mother's Day. I had finished my project by about noon and so I had the whole afternoon to go for a hike.
Since I would be getting a late start, I opted to stay close to home. I headed to Allen Gap
I passed a sign indicating the upper terminus of the Little Paint Creek Trail.
