Off to a great start
So far, we've made it hiking down Upper Wilson Creek, surviving a torrential thunderstorm, and backpacking into the Mortimer Campground. From there, we met our funyaks and paddled down the Wilson Creek gorge! Some parts were a little low, but definitely fun nonetheless. Today, we canoed down Wilson Creek to the John's River, skirted by Morganton, NC, and are on our way to the Catawba River before nightfall! We're absolutely enjoying covering the long distances by canoe as we continue to make our way to the ocean!
