The Ford at Devil\'s Hole
My friend Rob getting ready to finish the ford of the Linville River, going from the west side of Linville Gorge to the east, heading for the Devil's Hole Trail.

If a river crossing has a "crux" Rob was getting ready to make it! The river drops off just past where he is standing. He succeeded in the ford by tossing his backpack onto the rock to the right and then diving for the rock. He went shoulder deep. I followed and went chest deep. My son Andrew took the long tree trunk seen in the picture, braced it against the rock and the river bed and was able to make the crossing knee deep.
