Sure, you're gnarly, we all know that, but you're pretty darn antisocial too. You need to check with all the DL650s in the area to see if the rest of us are up for some adventure. Sure looks like you had a blast while some of use were working. Thanks for the pics and report.
Now you know.
In the mid-1800's, the Dalhe family used the open grassy areas which they called 'Sods' for grazing sheep. Their German name became the present name "Dolly" of the "Dolly Sods." Grazing continued on the Sods until the late 1970's.
And be carefull what you poke while you are up there:
During World War II, Black Bird Knob and Cabin Mountain were used as artillery targets by the U.S. Army. Munitions from those exercises can still be found in some areas. If one is found, DO NOT TOUCH IT. Report it to the District Ranger in Petersburg.
Old mortar shells from military exercises during World War II are occasionally found in the Wilderness and Scenic Area. They should be considered extremely dangerous. If one is found, DO NOT TOUCH. They are unstable and may explode. Report it to the District Ranger in Petersburg.
Great pictures and thanks for sharing.
ps A real adventure rider would have swam across the creek to see if there was anything in the cave. Personally I would have just taken the picture like you did but I'm just saying.
Thanks for the report, glad to see you out and about. Looks like another good area to explore soon.
WeeStrom's start getting heavy all of a sudden when sideways near steep dropoffs. Didn't the dealer tell you that when you bought that thing?
Yesterday was a good day for riding.
Nice report & pix iDave! That is a great area for riding. Smokehole rocks.
I keep looking for the Strom in the picture but can't find it. Hints??
