On this day during our hike and overnight camping trip we enjoyed a whole gambit of weather conditions. At the beginning of our hike it was sunny and warm, the cloudy, rain, gale force winds. In the early morning hours (4 am) we were awakened by Burke County Search & Rescue, searching for two lost hikers, at 5 am the NC Highway Patrol Helicopter was on the scene, searching with their forward observing thermal imaging equipment. Thankfully, they located them cold, hungry, and a bit scared from an overnight in Linville Gorge Wilderness area, but OK.
