Down Memory Lane: Pisgah Forest (July, 2009)

2009  -- Pisgah Forest

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

In July, 2009, Betsy and I met my son Robert and his family in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard, North Carolina.  We did some hiking in the Pink Beds and had a wonderful picnic lunch.

After lunch the young people (my son inclued) decided that they would like to check out Sliding Rock, a popular summer destination in the western North Carolina mountains.  As the name implies, Sliding Rock is a water slide down a smooth rock face.  Betsy and I volunteered to be the official photographers, so we had to miss out on the fun.

In the collage above, Sliding Rock is shown at the top left.  Robert, Sean and Zack are waiting their turn to slide down the rock (Sean looks a little unsure about what he’s gotten himself into).  The top right shows Robert and Sean going down the slide.

The bottom left photo was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway later in the day, while another picture of Robert and Sean is on the bottom right.

    Looks like fun if you’re really young and fit! You captured the action well, and were wise not to join the fun!

    I often wondered what that would feel like on the rear end, but was never brave enough to find out! Great shots!

    What wonderful memories. I remember sliding rock. I missed the fun, too, because I photographed others enjoying the slide.
