Linville Gorge Overnight Parking on 01/18/2010 19:38:40 MST Print View

Is it safe to leave a car overnight at the Kistler Memorial Highway parking areas? I've had no problem with day hikes, but have never left a car overnight.

Thanks

While we're on the subject:

You know why they like orange so much over in Knoxville?

1. Wear it Saird-dy to th' football game.
2. Wear it Sunday huntin' deer.
3. Wear it Monday pickin up trash side the road.

LOL. Thanks for the information. I will wear the orange hat for any trips in that area. Just don't ask me to wear light blue.

Touche! ( at least you didn't call it baby blue)

There's a really good "local" forum devoted to Linville Gorge. http://www.linvillegorge.net/smf/index.php

I've found them to be really helpful and reasonably responsive.

Got the joke about the "orange" from an 'ol Miss fan and really came to appreciate the connection between the source and the joke after watching "Blind Side"
