    Nice pics as always, but you hang with a rough looking crowd. Is it October yet?

    That's what you were doing last night while I was passed out in the recliner with the tv on. LOL!

    Nice!

    The trip home. If you have not ridden 39 from Marlinton to Warm Springs, you are cheating yourself out of one of the premiere motorcycle roads in the area. I didn't get any pics, so you'll have to take my word. 220 from Warm Springs to Covington is pretty nice as well. We had breakfast at our favorite dive in Covington and headed south on 18 and then crossed the Rich Patch Mountains on 657, 619 and 616 over to Eagle Rock.

    Scenery was admired,

    As always, enjoying your camera work. Rt72 east out of Hendricks is da bomb.

    Oh, I also saved one of those recently. He was crossing the street and taking his time.

    And a few weeks earlier relocated this feller off the gravel in Moshannon State Forest. Same snake in each photo, different lighting.

    My sense of decorum is without peer. :D


    Thanks Jeff. How come the snake's tail is all blurry? :lol3


    I would love to find a little place to retire to up there in that high valley around Rich Patch, it's fantastic up there. :nod

    From Eagle Rock we took 43 over through Buchanan and up to the BRP, another very nice road. 80 miles on the BRP down to Tuggle's Gap was kind of a grind, but it was worth it to stay up high, out of the heat.

    We saw this down near Ridgeway, someone had some bad luck.

    80 miles on the BRP.

    That's 50 miles more than I can endure on the BRP.
