hiking trip to Stone Mountain, NC

Met up with ranger_1999(Dustin) and another friend for a hiking trip to Stone Mountain State Park in Traphill, NC. I got up and washed the truck for the first time in two weeks at 7:30 this morning for the occasion. It was a nice hike and the view was spectaculor!!!

I'd love to go camping. Wilson Creek is a really cool location to camp at, theres sites all over the place down there and a ton of gravel roads to explore.

Yeah man for sure, Cort would love to go. Julian Price park is a nice campground as well, a little more expensive a night though. Those are the only 2 i've been up in the mountains, theres surely not a lack of areas to go.

Oh nevermind, can't make it this weekend either. Forgot we have to go to Greenville on Saturday

Best bet might be end of August or early September, I'll talk to her soon and see what will be best for her.
