Didn't we just go through this last week? Layla had plans to meet people for a trip through the Breaks in her boat. One by one, each bowed out. Instead of backing out herself, she decided to head back to the Gauley.
Battle Run campground was closed for the season. We formulated Plan B on the spot. Wilderness Campground just south of WV 129 on US 19 is a nice place to stay and not too expensive.
It was cold Friday night and Saturday morning. I was on it by 8:30.
The view from the Meadow River bridge.
Dotson Ridge Road from 19 to 60 then a long grind on 60 to Rainelle. Mountain Heritage Produce between Rainelle and Rupert is a cool place.
Gas up in Rupert because we're hittin the trail. Did I mention that I love my DRZ 400? Gaston, are those new Dunlops on your bike?
Find Rupert on the map. Find Richwood. Draw a line between them and actualize it.
