    8 days with friends in WV - Part 2

    (Continued from Part 1)

    After a grulling climb to a location called HooDoo Rocks, it was down the fast and
    then rocky decent to the plateau before Moonrocks. I was able to get ahead of
    a few in the real rocky section.

    Here comes Dave having entirely too much fun.


    Then Jason and Jonathan


    Then Brian



    Then it was up onto Moonrocks. This is a nearly solid limestone mountain top.
    We had a great time making our way through the extremely rocky terrain.
    Taking a break about halfway through Moonrocks in one of the few flat spots.


    After making our way off Moonrocks and through the maze of a trail through the
    swamp below Moonrocks, we crossed the creek and start out climb to Mount
    Strip Mine.


    We flew off Mt Strip Mine and onto several miles of milder trails just to rack up the
    miles. After the ride was actually over, Dan, Jason and I retraced our track to
    find some of the tools I lost from my seat pack and to return to the HooDoo Rock
    area to locate a pair of sunglasses Jason had lost. Just before Moonrocks, I split
    off from Dan and Jason to check out a new trail established in the last month and
    would met up with Dan and Jason on the other side of HooDoo Rocks.

    Meeting Dan and Jason on the HooDoo Rock Trail and then returned to camp.


    Back at camp, another friend, Pat had arrived. We talked for a while and had a
    few beers. Then laughed our arses off as Pat brough in an air mattress larger
    than his tent. He said "It'll fit if I have to go get some KY"!




    It actually fit. Then we had a visit from this strange looking guest. It appeared
    to be a miniature hummingbird but didn't quite look right. It flew like a hummingbird
    and had colorful feather like features on it's tail. After some research when I
    returned home and the help of some friends, we discovered it is a species of the
    Sphinx Moth, the Clearwing Hummingbird Moth. Pretty damn cool !


    Then we just sat back and enjoyed the company of good friends we hadn't seen for
    nearly a year.

    Part two was all taken in the Davis WV area. We camped on Camp70 Road right along the
    Blackwater River. It's an awesome place to ride. Nothing that nice around P-burg. Mountwood
    is about it.

    Well, no, I think I could have posted part two and part three as replies. This forum only
    allows 10 pictures in the post and I didn't think long enough before posting. Kind of a
    pain huh ? Next time I'll post 10 then go to replies and put the rest. It was a bunch
    of fun. My Son, age 12, stated it was the best week of fun he's ever had. That's good
    enough for me...

    I didn't get a chance to take a picture on the upper portion of Moonrocks, however Brian did and
    here's his picture. Pretty awesome place to ride.
