Back at camp we were greeted by Highbinder and Lady Draco with a bowl of cherries fresh off the trees on their farm!


















The rocks under a better light than this morning but still not the most dramatic of the day.....


















Can you spot any climbers?

I was in front of you coming up 16, reason I was running the speed limit is because that 10 mile stretch is a PRIME place to get a ticket. Was trying to be a blessing even if it seemed I was holding you two up.


Maybe next time I can catch you sitting still and we can talk some. Have a great trip brother.

I can at least say I have ridden with a legend for about 15 miles or so even though you didn't know who I was. That will be my story and I am stickin to it!!!



be careful what you wish for

I have over 5,000 shots on this camera now and it's getting some dust inside of it from being held up in the air while riding the bike so often so it doesn't focus on full zoom as good as it first did.

Here goes anyway....bonus points if you can circle a climber(s)


































What's everybody looking at? The rocks have been there all day, why is there a rush to take a pic now?

Roy got bored by the rocks and went for the totem pole.



































And a parting example of why I don't take many 'people pics'

We turned before we even got to town must have thought the old mill and church was all there was to it.

The "Sun on the Rocks" pics came out nice.

My camera was all the way over at the motel room.

I spent 4 months working in Petersburg, WV In 2011. I had planned to take some friends up there this year to ride some of those roads. Unfortunately those plans fell thru. I am glad to see you got up there. That is some beautiful country.

My buddy and I made it to NC last weekend, and we had an absolute blast!

Love your pics!

It's always a good time when you get together with the southern folks. Wish I could have been there.
