Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Dear woodsy ones,
Come join me on an early morning jaunt to the fabled Rocks of the Humped back.
We’ll shoot to take off from the Echols Brick Wall at a 5:15am. PLEASE DON’T BE LATE. It’s the kind of thing where if we are just too late the experience loses quite a bit of value. The sun rises at 6:43, so we will enjoy it in its entirety then head back down the mountain (tuck and roll) and be back no later than 8:30!
Please bring LAYERS so you won’t be chilly at the top but can still stay cool in the waxing morning heat on the way down. Also bring water. 1-2L minimum.
For those of you who have never done the hike, it’s a moderately difficult, but short, hike right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. A bit over half a mile each way.
As far as the potluck is concerned, everyone will be expected to bring something that we can all eat at the top together. I’m thinking about baking blueberry muffins, though I’ve never really baked before, so it’ll be part of the adventure! Potential things to bring for the potluck:
-bread and cheese
OTHER THINGS TO BRING:
-comfortable shoes for walking
-backpacking stove if you have one
