Discussion in 'Adventure, Hiking, Backpacking and Travel' started by Theodore, Feb 24, 2017.
Our local Overland Bound group got together yesterday for a meet-up and short day trip.
Me and two other guys have been working to get it going for a while now. We're getting ok turnout but still trying to build it.
We hit some easy roads in the area, couple shallow creek crossings and then ended the day on an overlook/picnic spot where everyone fixed their supper and got to show out their camp kitchens a little.
It was a fun day and we all have a great time getting out together like this.
Was going on a multi day backpacking trip...but wasn’t expecting this kinda snow though. We weren’t geared up for it, so called an audible after the first night and hiked it back out. Still a fun time.
Opening morning of rifle season is a little wet
I went to Fayetteville, WV today and did the Endless Wall Trail. 3 mile loop.
Cliffs of the Endless Wall. Popular with climbers.
New River Gorge Bridge in the distance.
Ladders leading down below the cliffs.
Looks like a Ruger American
I also went to nearby Babcock State PArk to try some new trails.
Old Pond Trail
Stone steps leading to the creek
The Grist Mill
Its is a ruger american in 300 blackout.
Second week of bird hunting season
Hiking into desert riparian areas. Scouting for places to bring friends and people who need introduced to wilderness skills.
Simple solo overnight. Was a little damp (for the desert) but good just the same.
12+ miles hiked
No doubt. It definitely has its own appeal.
Today I went on a 5.6 mile hike in Kanawha State Forest, WV.
It's nice when there's snow, you usually have the trails to yourself.
Simple overnight in a desert canyon. Even after an extremely dry year there was still a fair amount of water. Which was really nice.
Been hiking around a preserve about 15 minutes away from my home. Definitely some cool desert around the area. Practicing some skills, exploring the area away from the trails (found a cave and a few old mine shafts), and been seeing lots of animal sign. Good area.
Out and about
Trail/no trail running in the desert this evening.
