Sep 30, 2016 by Clayton Burton

Hey pals! Fact: Parent's weekend is BUSY. Fact: The Mt. Mitchell hike is a FUOC favorite. Fact: Conflict happens.

Mitchell is postponed for a later date TBD in order to give the opportunity to more people. What is the plan for this weekend? Still plan on departing from the Rabbit Hole at 6:30am. We will be heading straight to Bald Rock to watch the sunrise followed ...
