Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

lucky to have such cool places around me to be able to take my dog on after work hikes in the afternoon! Dolly sods wilderness is supposed to be the crown jewel back packing destination in the east and I know why and will hopefully never take it for granted.

actually a dual part mission...get some exercise for the dogs after work and find an old abandoned hillbilly trail from the forest rd that was supposed to connect to a real trail





the other dogs and people hopped across the stream, of course my dog did laps up and down it.





buddies four month old rescue puppy came with us....said to have husky in him, but the jury is still out for now!

ive seen about the wildfires on the weather channel! eeek! to be honest, it's been pretty dry here too... only 1.5" of rain in the past month which is way off from the norm. the whitewater rafting workers and farmers are all on suicide watch! and we did find the trail and made it a little easier to follow Smile

Holy bushwhack! Pretty sure I would get lost out east. Or run into plants and animals that I'm ignorant of.

That's dense right there. Bet it's a lot quieter in those hills too, eh?

I believe if I remember correctly from my year of studying WV history EONS ago, Dolly Sods is not a good representative of typical WV vegetation. I think there are plants and trees found there that do not exist anywhere else on the east coast until you get up into Canada.

I grew up further south near Cranberry Glades, which is similar. I've always wanted to go to the Dolly Sods Wilderness. I looks beautiful...and full of snakes...and ticks...and bears... Shocked

you do remember correctly! the area is sometimes described as 'a little bit of canada gone astray'. every week during the summer it seems there are new wildflowers to identify, or wild mushrooms or berries to eat. (only a population of 600 so there isn't much to do but go outside and explore hehe) lots of snakes and bears and critters, but not a lot of ticks around, though the vet did talk me into a lyme vacc. for the doggie and he is worth the $35 cost for sure!
