Named for 17th century explorer William Linville, who is said to have been related to Daniel Boone and suffered a scalping at the hands of local Native Americans, the Linville Gorge Wilderness is one of the most incredible natural features in the East. This scenic wonder lies deep in the heart of Western North Carolina where its 2,000 foot valley is carved by the powerful whitewater of the Linville River. Because words can’t adequately describe the gorge’s glory, we sought the assistance of a few local gorge rats who know there way around an SLR. Click to enlarge the photos in the gallery below.
