Technology is a wonderful thing! When it works! I need always remind myself technology is only as good as the men inventing and using it, and since there has never been a perfect human [save one] no technology is infallible. Two days, and two and a half months and I can report on this ride! My bad! These are from a ride I took back in August on a sunny hot humid Monday to Berkley Springs WV 51.6 miles of some pretty amazing roads. Not one stop light from the Cumberland city limits to Berkley Springs.

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ned=us&tab=nl Here it is! Check this out!

The following pictures are just form one spot along the trip. They are on Route 9 just outside of Berkley Springs right in front of the "Panorama At The Peak". See the website on line at http://www.panoramaatthepeak.com/ . A good ride:

The view from the overlook in front of the restaurant looking down on the city of "Great Cacapon".









Farm across the valley.



It was back during the heatwave and I was feeling pretty warm that what I thought was a buzzard circling me. I remembered this ride and saw these pics for the first time since August and started exploring. At closer inspection of my friend here I discovered something.



The marking on my friend where very significant. This is what I found as I enlarged and cropped the picture that follows.







Beautiful. If only I had a 500 mm lens.
