Linville Light Show - FEEL FREE TO SHARE!Typically, it takes me about 15 minutes to walk a mile. If you factor in the terrain on the Hawksbill trail in the Linville Gorge, you can certainly count that out. The trail to Hawksbill is roughly 1.5 miles up and back (0.8 miles one way), but it ascends a steep 700 ft in 0.8 miles to reach the peak of 4,009 ft. To say the hike is strenuous is an understatement, in my opinion. But don’t be fooled; the strenuous part is only near the end. Once you ascend to the peak, your effort is rewarded with one of the most beautiful 360 degree panoramic views in the Gorge. Rock outcroppings frame the iconic Table Rock and Shortoff Mountain peaks to the south, the Linville River 2,000 feet below, and the beautiful and rocky western face of the gorge in front of you. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a spectacular light show as the clouds roll over the ridges of the Blue Ridge Mountains, creating some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets imaginable. I visited on December 7, 2015 and was lucky enough to see a beautiful show of sundays bursting through the clouds just minutes before sunset. This photo is another image in a series of sun rays portraits of the gorge from my winter visit. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more!Connect with me!Website: http://www.cathyandersonphotography.com/Facebook: www.facebook.com/CathyAndersonPhotoInstagram: http://instagram.com/cathyandersonphotoTwitter: http://twitter.com/cathyanderson27 (@cathyanderson27)Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125802685@N03/ (cathyandersonphoto)500px: http://500px.com/CathyAndersonGoogle+: https://plus.google.com/112754818319166208261/posts
