Took the 200 for a romp yesterday.
All these roads are WV county roads, even tho you would be hard pressed to get anything bigger then a side by side thru some of them.

I need to go back to carrying my real camera, because the one in this new phone is terrible.

Bell Hill




A little farther down the road, it's rough in spots and I took a detour around some mudholes that were deep.




Onto some more dirt, this runs from Rt 72 to Rt 50.



A little side trip to get a better shot.


An old farm, the woman that lived here passed away about 12 years ago. She lived in this house until the end, she was in her mid 90s.
Next house is about a mile. Her family won't sell or rent it. Instead it's just falling in
Used to be a nice place.


You can just see the edge of the house behind the pine tree.


Old grinding wheel.


The old machine shed, the barn has already fallen in.


Some more of these awful WV roads.


View from the Red Rock church.


I think I need to look thru my phone, because it seems like I took more pictures than this.

That is all I have for now tho.

Did some riding with a couple other Inmates this past weekend,
Only took a couple pictures tho.

Did some scouting today, a road that is supposed to go somewhere doesn't anymore.
But it will if I get a chance to clear it.

Should come back out on 219, downed trees in the way now.


It was good for as far as I got tho.




Some more from the Douglas/Thomas area. I've been riding FS18 once in a while, it's a cool ride with a nice overlook.


Douglas is a small community near Thomas, that used to be a busy place.
Nice little sign they had there.

And a close up.

The pictures are from the top 2008, 1918 and 1900. Lots of change in the photos.



Then I saw a view from this road that I wanted to check out. So I tried a road that looked like something I shouldn't be on, but it has a county road number.

It took me here.


But not before I rode by this.




From the first sign.


You only notice a couple of the furnaces at first, after looking at the signs you realize that they line both sides of the roadbed for a few hundred feet.






I knew these were here somewhere, but not sure where.

It's spring..



Sorta




Well, it looks like spring here.


Not so much in the high ground.





Nice day, beat the rain home. I can't recommend doing 120+ miles for the first real ride of spring tho.
My clutch hand wasn't happy by the time I got home.

Roads drying, temps climbing. Have to go ride.

55 when I left the house, 70+ when I stopped in Parsons.


65 but still some snow on the ground on the road to Olsen Tower.



Still snow at the overlook on 219 too.



Lots of crap (gravel, salt, cinders) on the road still and the potholes are in full bloom so I was far below hooligan pace.
Still a very nice day for a ride tho.
