    I was afraid to take any cameras other than my cell phone camera..... it was so dusty on top of the ridges, so muddy in the hollers, and rough trail riding the entire trip. My right leg has burns and bruises from the exhaust.... very rocky and difficult riding for a greenhorn like me.

    It would have been nice though. I saw lots of nice flora, rock formations, waterfalls and abandoned deep coal mines.
    There was one deep mine entrance within 30 yards of my tent at camp....., but the support timbers looked old and meh...... not very safe.

    I was hoping to see some elk, but never did.

    Awesome adventure

    Where are the rest of the cell phone pics - we can handle the lower quality (wink-wink: as he snickers under his breathe hoping Av won't see the obvious baiting)

    I just imagine that a caravan of crazed, whooping maniacs ripping through mountain trails on less-than-silent, exhaust-belching steeds would be the ideal approach for timid, people-shy elk. Go figure.
    All the best,

    omg ron, rolls eyes.... you nut
    Ive got maybe two more pics, but just of tree covered mountains.... nothing special as far as pics go

    I wasnt expecting to get close to an Elk, but even a sighting would have been cool.

    The fern(?) fossil

    Found it while taking a short maintenance break on one of the peaks.... just happen to look down and see it.
    Very cool...

    Any opinions on the ID?
