Erwin Linear Trail



This is the bridge over what I call the Turtle Pond, although I don't know of any official name for it...

It is full of different size turtles that like swimming and floating around as well as warming themselves atop logs on sunny days. Also full of minnows, bluegills, frogs, ducks, etc.

Click to view a map of Erwin Linear Trail  Because I take SO MANY pictures along this path, see the map above which links to several of the images. It will also give you a good idea of where each scene is located.

Lazy afternoon on the Nolichucky


A hot afternoon at the end of May...

Two guys. Two tubes.
No problems.

Martin's Creek Bridge


Ducks, snakes, beaver dam above, lots of forget-me-nots along the rocky, grass-edged creek.

Kayaking practice



The linear path ends near exit 40 of i26, which is just below where lots of rafters and kayakers run some white water.

These folks were practicing rolls and such before they took on the more challenging sections of the river. Staying cool, having some fun, waiting for the rest of their party to show up.

This was the same day the tube-riding fellasa drifted past...
