Are those radar domes and antennas? I don't understand...why would they put them down in a valley instead of on top of a ridge?

They're hiding from stray radio waves. One of the best reasons for riding around there: almost no cell coverage away from the towns.

Awesome pics, Rick. You need to keep better company though.....

A couple weeks ago I went to the UP (Upper Pennsylvania) to the BYOB gathering in Galeton. I was determined to keep myself on back roads and make a two day trip out of it. I did good all day, until I got to Maryland and started looking for a place to stay; there really wasn't much to choose from so I got on US 220 into Altoona. WTH, I've wanted to see the Horseshoe Curve anyway, this would be a good opportunity. It also gave me a chance to try out my new rain jacket at highway speeds; I stayed nice and dry, so I've got that going for me.

I found some new roads up through Virginia/West Virginia that look like this;




It was a struggle being out there by myself on those narrow, paved roads but I soldiered on. I have a small battle with SmugMug going on and I need to figure out the order of and upload some more of the pics I took.

See you this evening.
