John Rock & Cedar Rock Falls

The John Rock loop hike totaled about 6 miles with 1000 feet of elevation gain.  It included a lovely waterfall - Cedar Rock Falls.  After the hike, a few of us walked around the trout hatchery that's adjacent to the John Rock parking lot.  At the hatchery, I believe, until someone proves me wrong, that I spotted this celebrity.  Later, on the way out of Pisgah National Forest, we pulled over to view Looking Glass Falls.  Actually, I stayed in the vehicle.  But take a look (below) at the image Mark Schmidt captured with his camera.

And this is what Looking Glass Falls was like yesterday.
